The student of engineering learns to apply scientific principles so as to construct works that will stand up against the strains to which they are likely to be exposed; the student of medicine learns to apply scientific principles to the relief of disease in the human body. While originating in the US, both the four field approach and debates concerning it have been exported internationally under American academic influence.
