The profession of engineering is grouped into specialized disciplines that have developed in response to societal needs. No matter what their field, whether one of the "big four" fields of civil, computer, electrical, or mechanical engineering, or a specialty discipline like ocean engineering, all engineers possess a mix of creativity and smarts. They excel in mathematics or science and spatial relations, and they use these talents to synthesize information, solve problems, and innovate. In this collection of images adapted from The American Society for Engineering Education, learn more about the many fields that make up the engineering profession. Grades 3-12.

The Open Source movement revolutionized the way computer systems were developed and how companies made their businesses. Its philosophy requires that all source code should be freely shared, so that as many people as possible can use, change, learn, and improve upon it. In recent years the increasing availability and low costs of electronic components, processors and 3D printers meant that an open model of development has taken root also in the world of hardware, including the development of scientific lab equipment. The implications for research can hardly be overstated: “Open Labware” designs are almost always cheaper than “closed source” ones, allow for distributed development and, critically, customization by the end user, the lab scientist. PLOS welcomes submissions in this field.

Designed products surround us all and range from bus tickets to buildings. This unit focuses firmly on usability and the increasingly important phenomenon of people-centred design. It aims to inform consumers of design (i.e., all of us) about this crucial characteristic of design. The unit is derived from the Open University course T211 on Design and Designing, but as well as stimulating interest in areas of concern for producers of design it might also provide an introduction to engineering, manufacturing and business studies.
