Engineers Shape the World
Engineers solve problems.
They use the design concept to solve problems. There are now six major branches of engineering: Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Management, and Geotechnical, and literally hundreds of different subcategories of engineering under each branch. The hexagon is the strongest shape known. Triangle shapes are commonly used for strength and structural support. Consider the pyramids in Egypt. Structures must be able to remain standing despite large amounts of force put on them by weight and other factors such as earthquakes or wind. Using different geometric shapes, structures are supported in different ways.
