Engineers apply principles of science and math to solve problems, build products, and make processes more efficient. Engineering is a very creative field, with an emphasis on putting science into practice.

Engineers are responsible for impressive products, systems, materials, and processes we rely on in our daily lives. For example, engineers find solutions for water pollution, build state-of-the-art infrastructure, create artificial organs, and design green and efficient transportation systems. 

Engineers are problem solvers, leaders, and able to work collaboratively. Engineering is very broad, and there are many disciplines of engineering, each with its own set of specialized knowledge and career possibilities. The skills you learn in engineering will help develop exceptional problem-solving skills that will be transferable to any career.
