What Do Engineers Do?
Engineers are creative problem-solvers who aim to improve the world, increase productivity, and help people live better lives. They apply math and science principles to design everything from 3-D televisions to bionic body parts to hybrid cars. Just imagine how many engineers worked to improve airplanes so that they can carry up to 800 people—or ,how many engineers created the Kingda Ka roller coaster that travels at 128 miles per hour! Engineers not only work on exciting projects, but are also part of a growing field with above-average salaries. Imagine Engineering gives you an overview of some of the common types of engineers and their job duties—but this is just the beginning. You’ll also find profiles of women engineers, tips and advice, and Web sites where you can learn more.
