The Engineering Process at TWI

The Engineering Process at TWI

The engineering process is a series of steps used by engineers to solve the problem. This involves finding an objective as well as determining constraints and then creating, building and testing. This is a crucial aspect of every project we undertake at TWI. It allows us to ensure that our projects comply with the highest standards of safety and performance. This is particularly important for New York City projects as they must meet the strictest requirements.

In this stage, students investigate the problem they’re confronted with in order to determine what the issue is and gather information. It’s an open-ended, centered on the student approach that shifts the classroom away from the traditional science curriculum.

Students brainstorm ideas for solving the issue. This is done by having discussions and writing on a whiteboard or using software. It’s okay if certain ideas aren’t working. You can try other solutions and experiment with them.

After reviewing and brainstorming the findings The team then chooses a solution to design and construct. This can be done on paper or with CAD software by creating a physical or virtual prototype. This is a fantastic step for students as they can design a tangible prototype that will let them test their solutions.

Here is where engineers have to be cautious because they are governed by limitations like time and cost, tools, and resources. Engineers must also bear in mind that their solutions have to be secure and effective for use in the real world.
