    The term engineering itself has a much more recent etymology, deriving from the word engineer, which itself dates back to 1325, when an engine'er (literally, one who operates an engine) originally referred to "a constructor of military engines."-Oxford English dictionary (taken from wikipedia) Abbreviations from my own personal experience: eng=engineering ME or MEEG or Mech-E= Mechanical Engineering ELEG=Electrical Engineering CHEG=Chemical Engineering CIEG=Civil Engineering
