Ingenuity is Art

When it is asked for an engineer to design a machine with specific properties, constraints, and performance, he uses not only the laws of physics, analysis, and mathematics but a higher level of skill: Ingenuity.

To solve the most difficult problems, the engineer must use this kind of skill often in original, clever, and inventive ways, which is Art. In particular, this is important nowadays in a world where automation, integration, and optimisation are playing an increasingly important role.

Art as a design philosophy characterises an engineer in all his works from the development of ideas to their implementation and testing.
