||An engineer examines and tests the
properties of matter and the sources of power in nature, with the goal of
making new, better and more useful structures, machines and other products.
There are many different types of engineers. Those in agriculture include
civil, industrial, genetic, electrical, mechanical, chemical, hydraulic,
electronic and agricultural engineers. An agricultural engineer, for instance,
creates and improves ways--often related to farm machinery--to produce more and
better food and fiber for us.
