What makes an Engineer

I love cars… their design, the speed, the ride into the open roads! But most of the times I am catching myself enjoying more the internals of them! How they work, how they operate! Why is this piece here and not there? Why they add this component and not the other one that seems better on specs? And almost always this canvas of tubes, springs, metal alloys, electronics and actuators is like an art for me!
And this isn’t happening only with cars. Airplanes, robots, jet engines, electronic equipment… everything! Maybe this makes an engineer! The wonder of how things are operating. How we can make them better. How we can push the boundaries even further!
