Engineering made simple

Here is a long definition of engineering:

Engineering is the use of scientific principles to design and build machines, structures, and other items, including bridges, tunnels, roads, vehicles, and buildings.[1] The discipline of engineering encompasses a broad range of more specialized fields of engineering, each with a more specific emphasis on particular areas of applied mathematicsapplied science, and types of application.

Here is Mr. Portelos’ simple definition

Engineering is about designing solutions to problems.

When you look at anything, from a cell phone case, to a game controller, think of it as solving solutions to a problem in the past. Whether it’s protecting a phone, or making it comfortable for you to play game so you can access more buttons easily, engineering is all about fixing problems through the design process.
