What is Engineering?

Video: What is Engineering?

Engineering is a field that everybody knows about – but few people understand, so we at the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment have made a video to help explain.

This short video aims to describe engineering through animation - from mobile phones, computer games and toothpaste to amazing engineering achievements such as aeroplanes, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the world's tallest building.

The video is intended to explain the engineering profession, but should entertain anyone interested in engineering, maths or science. It highlights the importance of maths and science and touches on a few of the programs we offer at the University of Newcastle.
