Thanks to my degree we studied the plant biology using an engineering point of view, explaining the water transport using physics formulas and also the biochemical processes using energy principles and chemistry stoichiometry.
Moreover, we are using all the time tools and equipments that needs to be repaired time to time. All of this contribute to study plants and improve their develop.
If you check the engineering meaning has two entries:
1. the branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines, and structures.
2.the action of working artfully to bring something about.
