Re: Aaarrrrrrrrrruuuugggghhhh
Folks, why are you feeding this troll? Isn't it more than apparent he is just spewing nonsense and is attempting to get a rise out of everyone?

Just ban the nimrod already.

Re: Hehehehe u guys are such jokers
I like to say that science is the art\process of understanding the diversity of the universe

Engineering is the art\process of making practical use of scientific knowledge.

Using science procedures to , for example, test samples of steel to ensure they are within design specification means using science procedures, but it doesn't make engineering A science.

I have a degree in electrical engineering. I am looking at my diploma right now; its hanging on my wall adjacent to my computer. It says the following:

Bachelor of Engineering Science
Electrical Engineering

I had always considered engineering a science. When I was studying at university, four year degrees often carried the qualifier 'BSc' (Bachelor of Science) qualifier while three year degrees were 'BA'. (Bachelor of Arts)

I admit the notion is a little confusing. Especially when one is familiar with the 'STEM' acronym: Science, Technology, Engineering, Math. Which would seem to demarcate engineering and math from science.

I think its likely the word 'science' is being somewhat overloaded, which is causing a bit of a problem. I often looked at engineering as a discipline which utilized various practical techniques to employ scientific concepts and principles. One could argue that makes it different. But being that one can get a PhD in engineering leads me to believe it technically could be a science per se.

Computer science is another example: would that really be a science per se? I guess it really comes down to definitions. At a its core definition Webster's says this:

quote:
Science
"the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment."

I honestly could go either way on this one. But I may just have to defer to what my diploma says.

Political science is the one that makes me roll my eyes.

Actually, 'political correctness' is even more asinine. If that isn't an oxymoron, I don't know what is.
