The Engineering Process at TWI

The engineering process is a series of steps that engineers follow to solve the issue. This involves identifying an objective, determining constraints and developing, building, and testing. This is a critical component of every project at TWI. It allows us to ensure that our projects comply with the highest standards for safety and performance. This is particularly crucial for New York City projects as they must be in compliance with strict standards.

Students investigate the issue to gain a better understanding of the problem and collect data. This is an open-ended, student-centered approach to science that redirects classes away from traditional teaching.

At this point, students brainstorm ideas on how to solve the issue. This can be accomplished using software, whiteboard writing or discussions. It’s fine if some ideas aren’t working. You can try different methods and test them.

After studying the findings of their research and brainstorming, the team decides on a method to design and construct. It could be done printed on paper, using CAD software, or by creating the creation of a prototype that is physical or virtual. This is an exciting process for students because they can create tangible objects that can help them to test their solutions.

Here is where engineers need to be careful as they are governed by constraints like time and cost, tools, and resources. Engineers must also be aware that their solutions must be secure and efficient to be able to be utilized in the real world.
