I look at it that scientists figure out how to do things by figuring out how things work. Engineers don't care how things work, they just implement practical usage of those things. I don't care how a diode works, I only care about what it does and what that can do for me, and how I make use of it. The scientists gave me a working diode and moved on to creating the next item for we engineers to make use of.

Engineers enjoy a process, but focused on a result. Scientists enjoy result, but all they care about is a process.

Good answer. On a personal note: "Gordon Scott" were you once associated with an outfit known as the International Greenland Society or some such?

I believe "Scientists study the world as it is, engineers create the world that never has been" . But them based on each other. Engineers are based on the theory from scientists; Scientists are based on the tools and equipments from egnineers.

SarahCurry is just so wrong. Everyone imagines the future, Scientist proves the possibility of the imagined. and only the scientifically proven can be engineered.

the proofs and equations just dont lie in the head. they are proved by the hand

Scientists are people who dream sweet dreams. Engineers are people that turn these dreams into reality. Usually, they become your nightmares.
