In the course of time a lot of technical terms have been developed within the fields of science and engineering. Although these terms may be indispensable among experts, they can be hard to understand for other people. This glossary has been created to provide non-experts with simple definitions of terms that are important within our field of work. The list is a work in progress and therefore not exhaustive.
