Engineering is all about creating new things and solving real problems. It's a huge field, blending topics from almost all branches of science with the formal study of design and economic analysis. Practitioners revel in the feeling of accomplishment that results from seeing their designs come to life, which often only occurs after extensive analysis, testing and de-bugging on the part of an multi-disciplinary engineering team.

The Engineering curriculum includes a lot of math and science, so if you enjoy those topics maybe this program is for you. We're not really scientists though, and it's difficult to describe just what Engineering is in just a few words. To get a better feel for the profession, we suggest you follow this Engineering Quotes link to read some inspirational (and sometimes funny) quotes about us from famous people. Or maybe do a Google search - you'll be amazed at the number of different definitions and descriptions you will uncover. We like to say "Engineers build things!" and leave it at that. Maybe it's as good of an explanation as you are going to find.

If you look around our site you'll find loads of information about our courses, programs, student projects, etc. We hope some of it is useful to you. We've also put some information describing popular disciplines of engineering on our site for you to read. Just click on the "Fields of Engineering" button on the left to check those out. But while reading all this stuff, keep in mind: Engineers build things! It's different than science, there's a bit of art involved.
