SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING
Tell me, what is the difference between Science, Technology and Engineering?
It is simple.
The principal goal of a Scientist is to publish a paper.
Science is the reasoned investigation or study of natural phenomena with the objective of discovering new principles and knowledge of natural phenomena.
The principal goal of a Technologist is to produce some physical change in the world.
Technology is the practical application of science. Technology includes the skill, technique and knowledge of the manipulation of nature for human purposes, using scientific results and knowledge.
The principal goal of an Engineer is to design, create and produce new tools, machines and systems for practical human means by exploiting technology.
In a nutshell, a Scientist studies nature, a Technologist manipulates nature, and an Engineer exploits technology for human purposes.
