Look up engineer in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

An engineer is someone who practices the profession of engineering – a person who uses scientific knowledge to solve practical problems using technology.

The word "technologist" is sometimes used synonymously as it derives from the prefix Techno- and the suffix -ologist, hence, someone who studies technology. However in some Latin countries, "technologist" is a somewhat lower certification at a level between technician and engineer.

In US railroad terminology, the word engineer also designates the driver of a locomotive engine.
