    I see no comparison between the two. Same like Geeks are various in kinds, there are art geeks and there are computer geeks. A hacker probably knows his networks the best while an engineer knows his machines of his subject well. No relation between the two.

    I quite agree with QM on this the thing is that they both are of different fields so there is no use of comparison between them by any chance.

    Can you be more precise. The word knowledge is way too ambigious in this case to even start discussing anything.

    In my opinion this thread makes no sense and is total BS. Instead of being in qnA this thread should be in chit chat.

    even though the definition of knowledge is vague as used in the question, I have voted for the hackers.

    i say both because wen developing something new 1 has to take various aspects into consideration thr is hope for something new urge to develop fast frustration due to failure and other tech aspects which at times refrain the original product tht comes out tobe fool proof and is at times most vulnerable ..... hackers hav the ready thing in front of them all they need to do is mess with it and once the engineer comes to know he knowing th original codes and the vulnerability can rectify it but hackers are also genius coz finding out weaknesses in others is ur biggest strength
    __________
    i agree

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    [​IMG] - Hacker is a term used by some to mean "a clever programmer" and by others, especially those in popular media, to mean "someone who tries to break into computer systems." 1) Eric Raymond, compiler of The New Hacker's Dictionary, defines a hacker as a clever programmer. A "good hack" is a clever solution to a programming problem and "hacking" is the act of doing it. Raymond lists five possible characteristics that qualify one as a hacker, which we paraphrase here:
    • A person who enjoys learning details of a programming language or system
    • A person who enjoys actually doing the programming rather than just theorizing about it
    • A person capable of appreciating someone else's hacking
    • A person who picks up programming quickly
    • A person who is an expert at a particular programming language or system, as in "Unix hacker"
    Raymond deprecates the use of this term for someone who attempts to crack someone else's system or otherwise uses programming or expert knowledge to act maliciously. He prefers the term cracker for this meaning.
    2) The term hacker is used in popular media to describe someone who attempts to break into computer systems. Typically, this kind of hacker would be a proficient programmer or engineer with sufficient technical knowledge to understand the weak points in a security system. For more on this usage, see cracker.

    An engineer is someone who is trained or professionally engaged in a branch of engineering.[1] Engineers use creativity, technology, and scientific knowledge to solve practical problems. People who work as engineers normally have an academic degree (or equivalent work experience) in one of the engineering discipline

    ______________________________________________________
    An engineer can become a hacker , and a hacker owns some sort of Engg. skills.
    ______________________________________________________
    both of them concentrate on developing nd improving systems....
    but generally a hacker is concerned with security issues and bugs.
    ______________________________________________________
    And the engineer is concerned with designing the systems
    Engg. makes something nd hacker deals with security nd bugs issues..
    ______________________________________________________

    But as we all know only some ppl who go beyong ENGG. limits can b hackers....
