Mustapha Alaoui Ismaili Phi 241 Paper 1 What is engineering? Some people will argue that engineering is a new field and some others will argue the opposite. If we think a little bit what engineers really do on the most fundamental level. We will find that they consider the needs of human being and try to create solutions and things that have never been used before. They also try to maintain and develop the existing things. For instance, people wanted some entertainment, so people thought about creating TV, which involves knowledge of electrical engineering. Engineering is divided into many big fields, which are also divided into subfields. Electrical, aerospace, mechanical, and many others are fields of the engineering world. All of them have some common points. They all should be creative, and try to solve problems. For instance, civil engineers had to think about a way to make people cross the rivers. They thought about creating bridges. When the load went up by creating of heavy cars and trucks, they thought about creating more

Engineers also have to work as group with other engineers from different field, for instance, if we consider the creation of aircraft. Electrical and mechanical engineers have to put their knowledge together to create the aircraft. In order to be good engineers, they should have good background in math, such as calculus, and sciences, such as chemistry, biology, and other sciences. Engineers are supposed to be good in research, because engineers will not learn everything in school. But, they will be asked to make research and try to put all their knowledge to solve potential problems. Engineers are known for their team work, and creativity. They try to make an easy life for people by thinking to their well being. They try to make new discoveries to improve peoples standing of life. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29...
