Engineering is the practical and creative application of science and maths.  Engineers use the knowledge they have in a specific field to make things work, to improve things and to solve problems.

Engineers can be involved in building, testing and designing: they might work on large products like aircraft; small products like smart phones; buildings or infrastructure; energy sources such as wind power or nuclear power; computing systems or software; transport; medicine; food; music; clothing and much more.
