Engineering:  Clever and robust solutions to complex problems What are the current capabilities of advanced technologies? What are the limits? Can the limits be overcome by nanotechnology? Parameters of the problem: Physical laws Properties of available materials Performance of available manufacturing and processing Engineers must synthesize aspects of a problem to solve it What should an engineer know? What should an engineer know?
