What is Engineering?
Ever wonder who comes up with stuff? Cool stuff like the cell phone? An engineer. How about roller coasters? Yep, an engineer. And life-saving technology? You got it, an engineer.
Engineering is one of the most exciting fields there is. It plays a huge role in lots of different industries like entertainment, environmental studies, manufacturing, and medicine. And there are a ton of fun jobs out there.
But, what is engineering exactly? It’s not just about math and science. It’s about being creative and coming up with ways to make things better. Women have been doing it for years—from developing the first long-lasting lipstick to using a kitchen blender to create the first batch of Liquid Paper.
The field of engineering really needs your smarts and creativity. In the next 20 years, 50 years, and so on; everything will change around you. You could be the one working with a team to make the world a better place!
