Someone recently described to me the difference between science and engineering as follows: A science problem is figuring out something nobody has ever known before. An engineering problem is figuring out how to achieve something that's never been done before.

Both of these are worthy endeavours, and there's some overlap. But these seem like reasonably good descriptions for so few words, and hopefully not anything that either scientists nor engineers would object to.
