IMPORTANCE OF ENGINEERING
In 21st century as we see everything surroundings us is made of with help of the knowledge of engineer’s, this shows us how much is the importance of engineering in our life & society in which we live in. Now before advancing towards the importance on engineering first we need to have introduction regarding engineering as well as its origin.
What is engineering?
Engineering is the application of scientific knowledge to solving problems in the real world.
It is the profession in which scientific knowledge & mathematics is gained through study, experiments and practical knowledge which is utilize for the benefit of mankind.
The term Engineering is derived from the Latin ingenium, meaning “cleverness” and ingeniare, meaning “to contrive, devise”. The engineering is the vast knowledge of sea or space which have boundaries at infinity, i.e. day by day from more and more research and practical experiment we are getting more information and knowledge. Engineers are problem solvers, organizers, communicators, calculators and designers. Engineering is a highly creative activity, especially when complicated problems are involved. The modern Engineer is also very software savvy and can use a range of different computing programs to assist in verifying designs and predicting how structures will behave in the environment.
The evidence of existence of engineering can be found from stone age such as fundamental invention of wheels, pulleys, carts etc., Since when human civilization has started there is significance role of engineering has been observe like in harappa Mohenjo-daro has a planned layout based on a street grid of equal sized buildings. The city was divided in 2 parts such as upper parts & lower part, the lower part had public baths and toilets and upper had house, markets, administrative buildings, a public gathering hall etc., since the structural design was well planned of drainage system all the waste products were easily drained out of city. Now as we proceed further great pyramids, Taj mahal & Great Wall of China are the engineering marvel and even seven wonders of earth. Japan is prone to earthquake which has led to invention of shock proof house & buildings which has saved millions of life till date. Ancient Greece developed machines for both civilian, military and for commercial purpose.
Now while we move towards early ages of modern era steam engines & electricity was invented which has revolutionized in mankind. Due to steam engine people & heavy goods were easily transported from one place to another. The electricity provide power to the industry revolution which has led to production in bulk quantities and good products with efficiency. Nowadays 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 applied science, technology and types of application.
The main branches of engineering are characterized are mechanical, chemical, electrical, civil, information technology, electronics & communication, computer engineering, aeronautical.
The aeronautical engineering made traveling time shorter and safest way to travel from one place to another which in turn save time as time is money as well as movement is space has increased and it’s study.
In modern era modern scientific and technological endeavors, computers and software play an increasingly important role. As well as the typical business application software there are a number of Computer aided applications.

Any environment surrounding can be made on computer and stimulated and hence product manufacturing accordingly. The advancement of engineering in electronics is such way that we can save millions of precious life during any climatic disaster such as effect of cyclone, earthquake, tsunami etc. by evacuating public safely. In the Field of medical science, advancement of engineering technology & chemical engineering has influenced a lot by inventing lifesaving drugs & organ transplant. The world tallest building burj khailfa & Eiffel tower etc. are one of the morden era engineering sensation. In agricultural industry many types of machines are invented for better crop yielding as well saving crop from natural and pesticides .
Engineers, and the practice of Engineering, has one primary goal: to benefit mankind, which we have discussed. Millions of any combination of 26 alphabets cannot describe the importance of engineering in our life & Society. It has always helped us in benefit of mankind as well as lifting up the standards of living. It has always helped us in sustainable development & provide steps to protect our earth and its surroundings nature.
Hence at last I would like to say One person magic is another person engineering.
