Abstract

The distinction between an engineer and a scientist is often forgotten. The difference is that the engineer is occupied with the creation of new artifacts, technologies, or systems, while the scientist is focused on understanding the physical world. To be sure, that understanding is essential to the creation of new technologies, but it is only the foundation upon which the engineer must build.
