Engineer vs Scientist

Awalnya karena sedang memeriksa naskah tesis mahasiswa S2, sebagian besar banyak yang tidak dapat membedakan antara metoda penelitian untuk social science yang sifatnya lebih banyak “mengamati dan membuktikan hipotesis dari suatu fenomena“, dbandingkan dengan engineering yang lebih banyak “merancang sesuatu“, akhirnya saya browsing kesana-kemari dan mendapat satu bagian menarik sebagai berikut:

  • A scientist sees a phenomenon and ask “why?” and proceed to research the answer to the question
  • An engineer sees a practical problem and wants to know “how” to solve it and “how” to implement that solution, or “how” to do it
    better if a solution exists
  • A scientist builds in order to learn, but an engineer learns in order to build
