When you think of an engineer, you’d expect them to be the people who are builders, but in reality they do not necessarily build but design things to make life better and easier. Construction workers are the ones that build things that the engineers design. Engineers work on solving problems by attempting to find a solution to the problem given by designing and building. Engineers are people who solve problems by designing, as well as building and by doing so they try to make life easier.

Greatest Engineering Achievements
There have been many great engineering achievements, but one achievement that is really great is the spacecraft. The website greatachievements.org mentions that the spacecraft lets you leave from earth and allows you to travel out into outer space to explore other planets, moons and other things that are in outer space. I think that from the four major disciplines of engineering, mechanical engineering was most involved. I think this because to design the spacecraft you had to use mechanical engineering to design the machines that would run and be included in the spacecraft. For example, you had to use mechanical engineering to design strong enough rockets to get the spacecraft into space. Therefore, mechanical engineering was likely to be most involved in the achievement of the spacecraft.
The Grand Challenge
I would like to be a vehicle engineer.As a vehicle engineer, I would like to work on the grand challenge called, make solar energy economical. Finding a solution to this challenge is extremely important to the world we live in because we are running out of fossil fuels. A website called engineeringchallenges.org states that solar power’s share of the total energy market is below 1 percent. If I were a vehicle engineer, I would mass produce solar powered cars to help contribute to the use of solar energy and finding a solution to the grand challenge.
