Engineers apply mathematics and sciences such as physics to find suitable solutions to problems or to make improvements to the status quo. More than ever, engineers are now required to have knowledge of relevant sciences for their design projects. As a result, they may keep on learning new material throughout their career.

If multiple options exist, engineers weigh different design choices on their merits and choose the solution that best matches the requirements. The crucial and unique task of the engineer is to identify, understand, and interpret the constraints on a design in order to produce a successful result. It is usually not enough to build a technically successful product; it must also meet further requirements.

And blah, blah blah…

Ok, so I didn't imagine that engineering would be simple, but I didn't imagine it to be so BORING! Lauren sat on her bed and sniffled as I turned to face her

"What's up Lauren?"

She shook her head and kept her eyes focused on her book. I scowled "Seriously, what's making you sad?"

She looked up at me with red eyes and a red nose "Augustus Waters just told Hazel Grace that he's got cancer."

I rolled my eyes "Haven't you read that book like a million times now? Shouldn't you be over the fact that he dies? I mean, I stop crying after the fifth time I read it."

She shook her head and glared at me "You don't understand, Augustus Waters is the type of boy that every girl dreams of having and then John Green just has to go and kill him."

I smirked "Well, I agree he is hot in the movie but I've seen hotter."

She sat up straight "Where?"

I grinned "In Vampire Academy, haven't you been seduced by Dimitri yet? Or even Mason?"

Now it was her turn to roll her eyes "Really?"

I nodded "Yeah, really! Have you not seen the way Mason smiles when staring at someone he likes? Have you not heard the way Dimitri speaks?"

She sighed and slammed her book shut, making me jump. Pointing at my engineering book she said

"Want to break curfew and spook out a few guards?"

I laughed "And I thought I was the one who was supposed to break the rules! Since when did you become a rebel?!"

"Since I got assigned a three thousand word essay that's due tomorrow; topic – how the behaviour of water can affect an animal's behaviour. Oh! And tomorrow's class work; another three thousand word essay but this time on how the moistness of the soil can affect the way a plant's cells grow."

I laughed loudly "Of course you get assigned that in your first semester!" I got up from my chair "Come on, let's go outside and cause some havoc!"
