Sure, the laws of physics that hold up ancient aquaeducts are the same that hold up modern skyscrapers, but I'm pretty sure ancient engineers didn't have CFD or CAD tools, or software to simulate loads and stresses in materials and joints, or 5D milling machines and 3D printers for prototyping, or the billion other tools that we can use today to make more and more complex structures and machines and robots.
Engineering does evolve: if it didn't, that would mean all engineers have failed.
