Engineering is the application of scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to design, build, and maintain structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes. It may encompass using insights to conceive, model and scale an appropriate solution to a problem or objective. The discipline of engineering is extremely broad, and encompasses a range of more specialized fields of engineering, each with a more specific emphasis on particular areas of technology and types of application.
In an industrial or industry context, "engineering" refers to the application of scientific, mathematical, and practical knowledge to design, build, and maintain systems, machines, and structures for various purposes. Engineering plays a critical role in many industrial and commercial operations and is a key factor in the development of new products, processes, and technologies.
