Science is for thoughtful people who cannot handle the underlying math that defines what's going on.  Many of my fellow engineering students in college transfered from the engineering track to the science track because they could not handle the requisite math...

Engineering is applied science: math, physics, biology and chemistry.  We make theories into working models.
Hey!  Lay off the scientists!  (My business card actually says "Scientist" on it... ;))

I've been a part of the development of a dozen new drugs.  My wife, who is also a biochemist, found a way to create a whole new type of drug that will probably become multiple major new treatments for cancer.  Turning an idea into a drug seems quite applied.

Oh you're a profit-driven type of a researcher. I see... No wonder you go in straight line from idea to result lol :)

You didn"t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.

Hell no.  I'm doing a victory lap.  We're in the Golden Age now!

Yeah! And in my experience the math in my field (physics/astronomy) is more difficult than engineering math.

How much engineering math have you studied?

What is "engineering" math?

Ask mihalybaci.  (see above).

I use differential equations and linear algebra in my work.

I just filled out the survey.  In your question asking how long the survey taker has been brewing there is a gap in your ranges.  You have   "less than 1" and "2-3".  I fall into that missing range at 1.5 years...I feel so left out.  I answered "2-3" to boost my rep.
