Intro to Science, Engineering and Technology

Basics are something which are and has to be concentrated before going on for further studies.   Lets have a look at defintions of Science, Engineering and Technology.


Science is the reasoned investigation or study of phenomena, aimed at discovering enduring principles among elements of the phenomenal  world by employing formal techniques such as the scientific method.   Engineering is the goal-oriented process of designing and making tools and systems to exploit natural phenomena for practical human means, often (but not always) using results and techniques from science. The development of technology may draw upon many fields of knowledge, including scientific, engineering, mathematical, linguistic, and historical knowledge, to achieve some practical result.  Thus, Engineering = application of knowledge gained via science to solve a problem or meet a need.   Technologies are not usually exclusively products of science, because they have to satisfy requirements such as utility, usability and safety. Thus, Technology = utilization of processes and products made via engineering, or the specific processes or products themselves.   Wraping in one line- Engineering is cause and Technology is the effect.  

To me engineering is designing and the structure/function of something… While technology is the usefulliness of that object in an applied world sense like in society….
