Introducing engineered science
Human beings have struggled for thousands of years to understand the natural world. Throughout history, Science, the body of accumulated knowledge for testable explanations and predictions with regard to the physical and natural world, has driven the development and progress of human society. Science covers many multidisciplinary fields such as including physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, geology, oceanography, ecology, meteorology, and many more, as shown in Figure 1. Mankind applies such broad branches of knowledge to advance human development and explore the unknown world. Science guides people in exploring the very large, such as the stars and the universe, in understanding the very small, such as subatomic particles and molecules, and in improving the human condition with advances in medicine and materials science.
