French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Modified, based on the verb ingénier, from Old French engigneor, itself from engin or from Medieval Latin ingeniator or ingeniārius ‎(one who makes or uses an engine), from Latin ingenium ‎(an engine), from in ‎(in) + gignō, gignere ‎(to produce, cause). The distinction was likely intentionally made to separate the word from the unrelated Old French engigneor ‎(deceiever).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

ingénieur m ‎(plural ingénieurs)

  1. engineer (person qualified or professionally engaged in engineering)
