The Application Of Science To Engineering

Improvements in engineering are very important to the industrialization
and prosperity of a country. Although engineering improvements sometimes come
through trial and error they are most often achieved by applying pure science
and mathematics to engineering. Canadian engineering was improved a great deal
in this manner. The engineering associated with building materials and long
distance communication, two of Canada's most important industries, was improved
through the application of pure science.
One of the most important scientific discoveries of all time was the law

The telegraph was also the main source of information for newspapers.
Like the telegraph, the telephone wouldn't have been possible without
the discovery of electricity. The telephone was discovered by Alexander Graham
