The Engineering Process at TWI

The engineering process is the set of steps engineers take to come up with a solution to an issue. This involves finding the goal as well as determining constraints, planning, building and testing. This is an essential element of every project at TWI. It allows us to ensure that our projects are in compliance with the highest standards for safety and performance. This is particularly crucial for New York City project as they must be in compliance with strict requirements.

Students investigate the issue to gain a better understanding of the issue and gather data. It’s an open-ended, student-centered approach that reorients the classroom away from the traditional science curriculum.

Students brainstorm ideas for solving the issue. This is accomplished through discussions, writing on a whiteboard or by using software. Some ideas may not work, but that’s fine because it gives them the opportunity to experiment with others and find an alternative.

After reviewing and brainstorming the findings after which the team selects the best solution to design and construct. This could be printed on paper, using the aid of CAD software or an idea that can be physical or virtual. This is a great step for students, since they can build tangible prototypes that enable them to test their solutions.

Here is where engineers need to be aware because they are governed by constraints such as time, cost, tools, and resources. Engineers must also be aware that their solutions must be safe and efficient so they can be used in the real world.
