Engineering

Engineering is our path to the future: engineers build rockets, smartphones, self-driving cars, robots, 3D printers and computers. But it's also our view of the past. How much have we learned about our ancient ancestors from the pyramids, the city of Petra, the Colosseum, and Notre-Dame Cathedral? Our love of inventing and creating has driven human innovation for centuries - so much so that the word 'engineer' shares a root with the word 'ingenious'.
