Engineering and Technology

A good scientist is a person with original ideas. A good engineer is a person who makes a design that works with as few original ideas as possible.

Engineers … are not superhuman. They make mistakes in their assumptions, in their calculations, in their conclusions. That they make mistakes is forgivable; that they catch them is imperative. Thus it is the essence of modern engineering not only to be able to check one’s own work but also to have one’s work checked and to be able to check the work of others.
– Henry Petroski

Technology is anything that wasn’t around when you were born.

– Alan Kay (Computer Scientist)
