  1. Dear Dr.D Thank you so much for raising and discussing this issue. I agree with the whole of your article but there are also other parameters, such as policy of universities. Some universities only care about their prestige and so they force and encourage students to involve in research projects more. In these universities even undergraduate students have to write journal and conference papers. In addition, some professors who play a key role in training engineers , just think about their academic position and want to raise it by increasing publications . So they use their students to achieve their goal. You defined science and engineering very well. Engineers are not scientists. They should apply science to solve problems. In other words they should use their hands more than their brain. But now the boundaries between science and engineering are becoming unclear. Frankly I should confess, sometimes I forget that I am an engineer! Thanks
