    ENGINEERING

    INTRODUCTION

    It is basically the application of knowledge of subjects like math, science, economics, etc. to invent or to design tools, machines, solutions, components, research etc. This is a vast discipline used in almost every aspect of life. It consists of four major branches:

    • MECHANICAL
    • CIVIL
    • ELECTRICAL
    • CHEMICAL

    There are numerous sub-disciplines as well to Engineering that these four major branches covers.

    According to American Engineers’ Council for Professional Development (ECPD):The creative application of scientific principles to design or develop structures, machines, apparatus, or manufacturing processes, or works utilizing them singly or in combination; or to construct or operate the same with full cognizance with their design; or to forecast behavior under specific operating conditions; all as respects an intended function, economics of operation or safety to life and property.
