This means to fix something, usually without the proper tools or parts. Often duct tape is used in massive amounts. Analagous to the phrase nigger rig.

To fix something by cobbeling together. Not only is duct tape a mainstay in the southern engineers tool box, but so is bailing wire. Typical uses for the bailing wire are any applications where welding would normally be used.

Jethro: "Thank god you went to the Po-dunk A & M community college in Stump Jumperville and got your GED on that Southern Engineer course"!
