Engineering And Its Importance by ZafriTan


									Engineering And Its Importance

With the world heading to a much more hi tech direction the need for
engineers is forever-growing. From civil to aerospace and everything in
between the field of engineering is extremely vast and the need for
them is ever so deep.

Being an engineer is a much respected profession as to everything in
today's modern world of science would not have existed without
engineers. Even from the ancient times of when Rome was still an
Empire, without engineers the armies under the command of Julius Caesar
would not have been able to cross the Rhine River to defend Gaul from
its raiders. Even though the bridges were built in less than two weeks,
it was able to sustain the weight of tens of thousands of soldiers
crossing it in addition to withstand the river's currents.

Though an engineer is viewed as the same as a scientist to the general
public, it is completely incorrect. As scientists explore nature to
discover general principles, engineers apply the already established
principles derived from mathematics and science to develop the most
economical way to solve a technical problem. Engineers use their skills
and knowledge to effectively meet the social need while still being
cost effective.

The people want ways to make their lives easier and their leaders want
to meet up to those expectations but the problem is that money is
involved in implementing these plans. If such plans were implemented
with the mindset of “as long as it works” then money can be blindly
thrown into such a foolish plan costing a city, a state, or even the
nation billions of dollars. Engineers come into play to save the
leaders money so that they may wisely use that money for other plans
that can improve the standard of living of the people.

When engineers develop a new product they consider many factors to make
sure that the product they are designing is the best of what can be
created with the current existing technology, knowledge and budget.
After much designing and testing they create the most cost effective,
safest, and reliable product ready for public use.

Engineers don't only design the roads and bridges that you use to drive
to work or school or the skyscrapers that define a metropolis. They
also design practical items such as the paper cup you use to drink your
coffee every morning to the extremely complicated parts of the computer
you use to browse the internet that as of right now you are using to
read this article.

Engineers are an important part of today's world and without them
everything that we deem as normal today would have never existed. From
the stop lights that regulate traffic during your commute, the chair
that you sit comfortably in, to the bed you lie on to peacefully sleep
throughout the night and engineer was involved in to get it from an
idea to a tangible item to be used. Because of engineering we can have
these luxuries that make our lives easier.
