'''Engineering''' is the application of [[science|scientific]] principles and advanced problem solving to create solutions to human needs.  There are many diverse fields of engineering, including but not limited to:
*[[Chemical Engineering]]
*Civil Engineering
*Electrical Engineering
*[[Genetic Engineering]]
*Industrial Engineering
*Mechanical Engineering
*[[Nuclear Engineering]]
*[[Computer engineering]]
The people who engage in engineering are typically [[college]] graduates and called [[engineer]]s. A few engineering fields, most notably civil engineering, have some sort of professional certification program, but complete certification is general achieved well into the engineer's career.
Engineering has produced some of the most spectacular feats of taming the wild earth, such as suspension [[bridge|bridges]] to cross wide rivers and valleys, dams to control [[flood]]ing and generate [[electricity]], [[skyscraper]]s to better utilize ground space in dense cities, rockets and equipment to explore the [[solar system]], and [[computer|micro-electronics]] and large machinery to help us achieve our goals.
