- 2012, David Blockley, Engineering: A Very Short Introduction (309), chapter 1, page 16:
- Gravity, heat, [and] electromagnetism…are the natural phenomena that scientists study and that engineers and technologists use to make their tools.
- Technologist is usually preceded by the name of the pertinent specialist field, as in cardiovascular technologist, industrial technologist, etc. These specialist practitioners’ two-word titles tend to be etymologically preceded by the equivalent two-word names of their specialist fields.
