Which 'Engineering', Specifically?

Defining what, exactly, we mean by ‘science’, ‘engineering’, ‘design’ both guides and constrains our efforts to practice them. I would highlight two vastly different definitions of engineering and science that exist in the cultural zeitgeist. First, many scientists I know, including myself, would define ‘science’ as something like: “Science is a continuous effort to better model and understand the dynamics of the world, driven by continuous inquiry and verification.”
