  • 3. What is Engineering? Department of UIC Bioengineering UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT CHICAGOThe Wikipedia Definition:Engineering is applying scientific knowledge and mathematics to createnew and useful devices, materials, systems, and processes.“The engineer is the key figure in the material progress of the world. It ishis engineering that makes a reality of the potential value of science bytranslating scientific knowledge into tools, resources, energy and laborto bring them into the service of man ... To make contributions of thiskind the engineer requires the imagination to visualize the needs ofsociety and to appreciate what is possible as well as the technologicaland broad social age understanding to bring his vision to reality.”~Sir Eric Ashby
  • 4. Engineering vs. Science Department of UIC Bioengineering UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT CHICAGO Engineering ScienceCreating new things or processes using Creating new knowledge using existingexisting knowledge technologyNeed/application driven Hypothesis drivenInvolves design based on analytical Involves experiments with onemodels dependent variable and controlsDesign is guided by goals and constraints Experiments are guided by results and constraints “Scientists investigate that which already is; Engineers create that which has never been”Results should be optimized w.r.t to Results must be statistically validated ~Albert Einsteindesign goals, and are validated by testingResults are expected to be implemented, Results are expected to be published,usually requiring careful documentation always requiring careful documentation
