This word definitely exists in some form, but the three senses listed — viz. 1) A scientist or engineer who specializes in a particular technology. 2) A person who uses science or technology to solve practical problems. 3) A technician. — seem to overlap a lot. I added a citation to Citations:technologist, but I'm unsure as to which sense I should list it under. I'm so meta even this acronym (talk) 14:48, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
- Hmm. I would say that def#2 is a sort of rewording / expansion of def#1. Def#3 is probably just plain wrong. I would expand def#1 with ", or uses technology in a particular field.", then delete defs#2,3. We might also add some sort of note that it is often preceded by the name of the field e.g. food technologist. SemperBlotto (talk) 14:56, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
A technologist is an intermediate title between engineer and technician, at least in countries where the title is officially recognized. Therefore a technologist is usually neither an engineer nor a scientist. It is a separate professional designation. —This unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk).
