Engineers are inventors, designers, and creators—they apply science, math, and imagination to make dreams a reality. As they work to craft technical solutions to consumer and societal needs, engineers bridge the gap between scientific ideas and commercial applications. The subfield of aeronautical engineering involves designing, developing, testing, and overseeing the building of flight-capable machines, such as aircrafts and spacecrafts. For the past 40 years, aeronautical engineer Paul Moller has been working to make his dream—a flying car—take off.

Engineering is a career that allows one to be creative, test a design and improve on it so that society can benefit from some concept in science as it applies to the world around us. In this case the author describes what inspired him, how he uses this to develop a sky car. He also gives advice to students. This is an excellent article for career exploration.
