Puns are great fun because of the clever wordplay that you just don't see coming.

Engineering is the process of solving problems with inventions. As the 'E' in 'STEM' and 'STEAM', engineering uses science and math, along with other subjects to create inventions, to build new technologies and improve existing ones to help people!

Though Engineering requires some serious brainpower, that's not to say that there isn't room for some good, light-hearted humor as well - get ready for some punchy jokes! From electrical engineering puns to mechanical engineering puns to civil engineering puns, the clever wordplay and double-meanings will certainly be appreciated.
