Engineering by Sunny Y. Auyang

Book Description

Genetic engineering, nanotechnology, astrophysics, particle physics: we live in an engineered world, one where the distinctions between science and engineering, technology and research, are fast disappearing. This book shows how, at the dawn of the 21st Century, the goals of natural scientists - to discover what was not known - and that of engineers - to create what did not exist - are undergoing an unprecedented convergence.
