Engineering is a science that depends on empirical formulas. Formulas that have been developed to best match the theory of design and test results. There is no engineering that does not have a mathematical basis. Once experience is developed by the engineer, than his designs can be initiated be estimates and proved by math.

Also as an engineer, you need the basis of calculus to help derive formulas.

For example calculus can help a civil engineer as follows

 Firstly, derivation of the basic fluid mechanics equations requires calculus. For example, all hydraulic analysis programs, which aid in the design of storm drain and open channel systems, use calculus numerical methods to obtain the results. In hydrology, volume is calculated as the area under the curve of a plot of flow versus time and is accomplished using calculus.
