Engineering is the application of science and mathematics to real world problems. Engineers plan, design, implement and maintain tangible and intangible things that are complex enough to require extensive scientific knowledge. The primary branches of engineering are civil engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer engineering and biological engineering. There are also several smaller branches of engineering many of which are viewed as interdisciplinary fields that draw from multiple branches of engineering, science, social science, technology and other knowledge areas such as construction industry know-how. The following are common types of engineering.
