Science or Technology

Science / Technology

Note that in this diagram, technology is not regarded as applied science but as a discipline distinguished by its own purpose, process, outcomes and body of practice.  The view that 'science leads, technology follows' is historically inaccurate and acknowledges neither the roles of science nor technology.
 
This model has been deliberately kept simplistic, justified by the need to provide an easily understood and applied model.
