what do engineers do
What Do Engineers Do?
  • Look around you. Most everything you see was designed, created or developed by an engineer.
  • In practice, engineers calculate performance of systems and components; They design and create the products of our future.
  • In research, engineers develop and create the tools used for predictions and designs.
