A Preliminary Guide to Science and Engineering

A digital reference guide to past, current and future scientific and engineering concepts. The nature of each article is to illustrate in a simple form, theoretical and practical ideas. Explore the wonderful world of science and engineering.


A theoretical and systematic practical program delivery, covering the behaviour of both the physical and natural world through continuous observation and experiment.


The development from scientific principles to conceive, design and construct; machines, systems and macro/micro infrastructure. The term engineering is derived from the Latin ingenium (brightness/awareness) and ingeniare, (create/devise).
