Take a look around the room and at all the items that surround you. What do you see? Probably some chairs, or maybe even some books or probably even a television. Engineers have shaped our world as we know it. An engineer helped make all of these everyday items. Engineers solve practical problems by applying mathematical and scientific knowledge. The word engineer comes from a Latin word meaning ‘cleverness’. The actual definition of an engineer is “A term applied to the profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences, gained by study, experience, and practice, is applied to the efficient use of the materials and forces of nature”(Funk and Wagnalls). The golf ball was engineered from a nonworking wood ball to the working …show more content…
Aerospace engineers build and Aeronautical and aerospace engineers design aircraft for civilian use, they also construct planes to help the military. Aerospace engineers help in the development and design supersonic jets. The engineers have to make sure the jet can withstand the high speeds it can reach. Engineers have to test materials that are used in the plane and make sure that it can withstand regular use. One of my sister’s friends had to test possible leaks inside a plane if a hose exploded and how long it would take for it to burn a whole and make it into the cabin of the jet. He had to spray hot liquid over a piece of metal and see how long it would take. Using a program, it showed how the temperature of the metal was rising. Over time, the heat that started in one spot quickly expanded throughout the whole sheet. I found this very interesting and decided to look into it. I’ve always been fascinated by how jets fly so fast but never really looked …show more content…
The most important accomplishment of engineers is the computer. Ever since I could remember I was always interested in computers. The yearning to understand how computers and software function has been one of the most ardent desires of mine since I was in the 6th grade. Everyone in my family knows I’m good with electronics. At church when someone needs help with their computers, installing programs or just setting up a printer, they come to me for help. Determine just how much information you can store on any hard drive. Figure out what instructions a computer needs in order to turn on and move information around. Design cables which link computers together to form networks. Develop peripheral computing devices such as printers, modems, scanners and digital
