What is Engineering, asked my little sister
My little cousin who was then still in her last year of school asked me “What is engineering”? Being a computer science engineer, I explained her-
“Computer science has several different areas. They teach you everything there, from computer hardware, to software, to project management, coding, web development, artifical intelligence, data structures, math etc.”
So she asked me – Why should we study all of them?
I said – “You know, it’s like going to an ice-cream parlour. You have 20 different types of ice-creams in there. You ask the shopkeeper to make you taste everything, but you eventually buy a scoop of the one you love the most”
“Engineering is like visiting an ice-cream shop”.
She got it.
