Engineering is the application
of scientific and technical knowledge to solve human problems.
Engineers use imagination, judgment and reasoning to apply science,
technology, mathematics, and practical experience. The result is
the design, production, and operation of useful objects or
A school is a large organizational structure which can contain
various departments and divisions. The departments and divisions
should be listed in the departments and divisions section. The
school should not contain any learning resources. The school can
contain projects for developing learning resources.
Divisions and Departments of the School exist on pages in "topic"
namespace. Start the name of departments with the "Topic:" prefix;
departments reside in the Topic: namespace. Departments and
divisions link to learning materials and learning projects.
Divisions can link subdivisions or to departments. For more
information on schools, divisions and departments look at the
To add additional Divisions or Departments within the School of
Engineering, edit the list of "Topic:" namespaces on the

An education in Engineering is built upon a foundation of
mathematics and sciences. Every engineering discipline shares these
fundamental studies at its core and every engineering student
should be proficient in them:
The education of an engineering student must encompass the
studies prescribed by the chosen discipline of study, yet will
additionally require study of topics related to all disciplines and
required in nearly every engineering field:
The histories of Wikiversity pages indicate who the active
participants are. If you are an active participant in this school,
you can list your name here (this can help small schools grow and
the participants communicate better; for large schools it is not
If you read news sites like Physorg.com there are many
stories of breakthrough technologies. It seems however, that these
breakthrough technologies just don't appear on the market or take
several years to do so. Why do these technologies take so long to
appear? Why do these technologies sometimes not appear? Do these
news sites hype the story to present an unrealistic picture of the
technology or is there some obstacle that prevents these
technologies from appearing on the market? What could be done to
increase the speed at which these technologies enter the
