Engineers are responsible for most of the fabricated world around us and thus, have a responsibility to create products that are beautiful as well as functional. It should be the goal of any engineering designer to create designs that look as good twenty years from now as they do today. It is necessary to consider the aesthetics of a design during the design phase in order to create truly superb designs. However, engineers must also exercise caution. Engineers love to use simple formulas to solve problems, but there is no simple formula that will guarantee aesthetic beauty. An awareness of some basic aesthetic concepts and recognition of them in the designs of others can help the designer create beautiful products.
