Do you know the true definition of an Engineer?

An engineer is a professional practitioner of engineering, concerned with applying scientific knowledge, mathematics, and ingenuity to develop solutions for technical, societal and commercial problems. Engineers design materials, structures, and systems while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety and cost. The word engineer is derived from Latin words ingeniare – to contrive, devise and ingenium – cleverness.
