Many people think that invisibility is only apart of our imagination or fiction. However recently scientist have been researching ways to bend light and create a way for objects to seem transparent.

They do this by emitting a certain frequency of waves in a beam or laser-like form. Light is an electromagnetic radiation. The frequency of the waves cause a disruption in the electromagnetic radiation and cause it to bend.

You can also read an article on the different components and science that go into bending the light here.

Or watch the video below.

This relates to engineering because in order to create a device to make things invisible scientist and engineers have to work to design and assemble a functioning invisibility beam.
