    To prove or disprove a theory an experiment is always needed. The deeper the theoretical question is behind an experiment the more complex it becomes. Engineering physics is exactly that working field, where you can realise experimental setups that are capable of answering the questions moving science today. Therefore you need understanding of the physics of the experiment and instruments but also the engineering to really set-up such an experiment. But how can this be done? How can you set-up a large project? How can you down flow the physical design of an experiment from the theoretical question? This will be answered within this lecture. As an example, the HIRES project will be presented. And then, we will start to work out an own project (the size depend on the number of students) with simulation, design, management and instrument development.
