Originally, the art of managing engines; in its modern and extended sense, the art and science by which the properties of matter are made useful to man, whether in structures, machines, chemical substances, or living organisms; the occupation and work of an engineer. In the modern sense, the application of mathematics or systematic knowledge beyond the routine skills of practise, for the design of any complex system which performs useful functions, may be considered as engineering, including such abstract tasks as designing software (software engineering).
The use of scientific knowledge and trial-and-error to design systems. (See Science.)
The profession of or work performed by an engineer. Engineering involves the knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences (biological and physical) gained by study, experience and practice that are applied with judgment and creativity to develop ways to utilize the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of human kind.
There are a number of types of engineering (chemical, civil, mechanical, electrical) which apply to different areas of design and construction. All engineering work is regulated by safety standards, and issues of patents and design protection may also arise.
The process or organization responsible for the skillful design, construction, maintenance and enhancement of complex or sophisticated systems of hardware, software, processes, etc.
the practical application of science to commerce or industry
the discipline dealing with the art or science of applying scientific knowledge to practical problems; "he had trouble deciding which branch of engineering to study"
a eugenic society that seems inevitable if we are to use our skills without any ethical framework

Any professional service or creative work requiring education, training, and experience and the application of special knowledge of the mathematical, physical and engineering sciences. Evaluation by Appropriate Persons: Examination and analysis by a qualified professional, tradesman, or service technician beyond that provided by the home inspector. Functional Drainage: A drain is functional when it empties in a reasonable amount of time and does not overflow when another fixture is drained simultaneously.
The practical application of scientific methods, technical principles, & mathematical processes in solving problems or engineer improvements, development, designing, manufacturing: technology systems, machines, devices, computers, engineer software, etc.
The design, construction and operation of structures and machines, using scientific principles.
A profession which a knowledge of mathematics and natural science gained by study, experience, and practice is applied with materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind.
Science, work, or profession of planning, building, or managing engines, machines, roads, bridges, canals, railroads, etc. [Old French engin = skill, which stems from Latin ingenium = ability to invent, brilliance, genius
The application of scientific knowledge for the design, control or use of building of structures, equipment or apparatus.(Any professional service or creative work requiring engineering education, training and experience and the application of special knowledge of the mathematical, physical and engineering sciences to such professional service or creative work as consultation, evaluation, planning, design and supervision of construction for the purpose of assuring compliance with the specifications and design, in conjunction with structures, buildings, machines, equipment, works, or processes)
Science concerned with putting scientific knowledge to practical uses, divided into different branches, as civil, electrical, mechanical or chemical engineering. Planning, designing construction or management of machinery, roads, bridges, building waterways, etc.
Analysis or design work requiring extensive preparation and experience in the use of mathematics, chemistry, physics, and the engineering sciences.
Engineering is the design, analysis, and/or construction of works for practical purposes. One who practices engineering is called an engineer, and those licensed to do so have formal designations such as Professional Engineer or Chartered Engineer. Engineers use imagination, judgment, and reasoning to apply science, technology, mathematics, and practical experience.
