What is an Engineer?
Engineering is the art of practical knowledge of having a creative mind & having abilities to solve problems to solve everyday life; also the practical knowledge of Physics, Science, or Chemical experience this information I got from www.tryengineering.org. to be an engineer you need to have a creative mind and problem solving abilities to get through everyday life. there are 4 main disciplines of Engineering-Chemical engineering, Civil engineering, Electrical engineering, & Mechanical engineering.
The Engineering Profession
What types of work does Engineers do?
Chemical engineering- Works with chemicals to create ...view middle of the document...
In the nuclear field you need to learn the nuclear fuel cycle, you can also work with nuclear reactors that generate power to cities & countries. It is also a combination of Mechanical, Chemical, & Electrical Engineering fields.
In the Nuclear engineering field you can build X-Rays that can create images of the human body to detect Disease, & Sickness. I think Chemical engineering is playing an important part when it comes to nuclear engineering since you are working with radioactive & toxic materials, which could infect the human body & possibly destroy it.
The Grand Challenge
The Grand engineering challenge I chose is Providing energy from Fusion, the reason I chose this grand challenge is because the resources we have are becoming limited & with the world in a energy crisis. Fusion is energy from the sun with the nuclear reaction can convert lithium with tritium to fuse together & become deuterium & with the molecules from the water is abundant enough to make an unlimited supply of deuterium energy it can solve the problem with energy here since it is also in computer laptops.
