Engineering Science is rooted in the basic sciences, such as physics, but carries this knowledge further toward applicability. It deals with complicated engineering situations in which a number of competing causes lead to manifold effects. Both scale effects and the conditions of practice are important, and in that it often differs from the natural sciences. In Engineering Science at Strathclyde University we ask ourselves “what can we create that is useful, given the laws of physics and other practical constraints?”
