What is Engineering?
Engineering is the art of problem solving. Engineering is the integration of science and technology to the improvement of quality of life on earth and in harmony with the nature. The sky is no longer the limit, thus, this goal is asymptotically towards the empoverment of every single human being in our planet.
Engineering combines all fields of science to build and improve the world around us, to offer human beings better quality of living and welfare.
What really distinguishes an engineer is the ability to implement ideas in a cost effective and practical approach. This ability to take a thought, or abstract idea, and translate it into reality is what distinguishes an engineer from other fields of science and mathematics.
An engineer, while studying, learns skills/tools which can be applied across disciplines and almost everywhere and later while working one can take challenges and create new systems using these skills. Engineering offers great rewards and opens big opportunities for those who endeavour. While Engineering is the application of existing knowledge in order to create systems for the well-being of society at large, at Nazarbayev University we also do research to create new knowledge to add on the existing sphere of understanding.
Engineers create and innovate for a better future, with strong social responsibility. As an engineer you can always see what you did as a tangible impact in the society and the planet. Always seeing what you have done, creates a particular ethical commitment to do things right. By dreaming up creative and practical solutions, engineers are changing the world all the time. Engineers are highly estimated all over the world, being an engineer you will never be bored, enjoy job flexibility, solve problems, design things that matter and change the world!
Make yourself to engineer the world!
Be the creator not the follower!
