What do Engineers do? 

We have all heard of engineering before and you likely know of an engineering company and what they do or produce. But what exactly does an engineer do?

What is meant when something is engineered well?

When you think of an architect as someone who designs and draws buildings, you can visualize someone with drawing tools. A doctor, you can visualize someone with the stethoscope with the white doctors coat.

When you think of an engineer you might imagine someone with a construction hat perhaps, but this only represents a portion of engineers, with many not working on construction sites and not dressing in HiVis (High Visibility) gear at all. In fact this iconic looks is typically the same as any construction worker.
