“A good scientist is a person with original ideas. A good engineer is a person who makes a design that works with as few original ideas as possible”. ~Anonymous Engineering design is the method that engineers use to identify and solve problems. The engineering design process is a series of steps that engineers follow to come up with a solution to a problem. Many times the solution involves designing a product (like a machine or computer code) that meets certain criteria and/or accomplishes a certain task. A design engineer is a person who may be involved in any of various engineering disciplines including: Civil Engineering Mechanical Engineering Electrical Engineering Chemical Engineering Textiles Engineering Aerospace Engineering Nuclear Engineering Manufacturing Engineering Systems, and Structural/Building/Architectural Design engineers tend to work on products and systems that involve adapting and using complex scientific and mathematical techniques. The emphasis tends to be on utilizing engineering physics and sciences to develop solutions for society. While industrial designers may be responsible for the conceptual aesthetic and ergonomic aspects of a design, the design engineer usually works with a team of engineers and other designers to develop conceptual and detailed designs that ensure a product actually functions, performs and is fit for its purpose. They may work with industrial designers and marketers to develop the product concept and specifications to meet customer needs and may direct the design effort. In many engineering areas, a distinction is made between the design engineer and the planning engineer in design; analysis is important for planning engineers while synthesis is more paramount for design engineers.

John Augustus Roebling was a German-born American civil engineer. He designed and built wire rope suspension bridges, in particular the Brooklyn Bridge, which has been designated as a National Historic Landmark and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. On May 22, 1831, Roebling left Prussia with his brother Carl and Johann Adolphus Etzler, who believed in a technological utopia, and a group of emigrants. Engineers had difficulty advancing and achieving economic mobility in Prussian society. The Napoleonic Wars, which lasted until 1815, had suppressed investment in infrastructure. During this period, Prussia had political unrest, as authoritarian governments took the places of democratic ones. Etzler had ideas about creating a utopia in the United States, but disputes arose en route, and the group split up. John and Carl purchased 1582 acres (6.4 km²) of land on October 28, 1831, in Butler County, Pennsylvania with the intent to establish a German settlement, to be called Saxonburg. Most of the other settlers had remained with Etzler. The John Roebling House at Saxonburg was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. When the Roeblings and others arrived, the United States was in the later stages of an economic boom, which ended in the Panic of 1837. Farmers were deeply affected by it. By the 1840s, many Americans believed in the nation's manifest destiny to extend its borders and achieve greatness. Transportation between eastern industrial hubs and frontier farming markets had become a matter of both national and popular interest. Many railway and transportation projects were underway near the site which Roebling chose for his colony, but instead of continuing in the engineering profession, he took up farming. After five years he married Johanna Herting, a tailor's daughter.
