Engineering is the application of basic sciences to the design, development and realization of innovative, intelligent and safe solutions for the benefit of society. Computer Science is one of the the basic sciences. To build robots mechanical engineers need to understand software principles in order to control the robot. Electrical Engineers need computer science principles to control and manage power grids that best conserve energy. Civil engineers use CAD software regularly,the need computer science if they have to tweak the software to make it push the boundaries for some new innovated idea. Biomedical engineers need software for medical sensors.
