The Engineering Process at TWI

The engineering process is a series of steps engineers take to solve a problem. This includes identifying the goal, determining constraints, designing and building, as well as testing. This is an integral element of every project at TWI. It allows us to ensure that our projects are in compliance with high performance and safety requirements. This is particularly crucial for New York City project as they must meet stringent specifications.

In this phase, students study the issue to gain a better understanding of the issue and gather information. It’s a flexible, student-centered method that shifts the focus of the classroom away from traditional science instruction.

Students brainstorm ideas for solving the issue. This can be done through discussions and writing on a whiteboard, or using software. Some ideas might not work, but that’s okay because it allows them to try different ideas and discover the most effective solution.

After analyzing the results of their research and brainstorming, the group decides on a develop and build. This can be done on paper using CAD software or using a virtual or physical prototype. This is a great step for students, since they can design an actual prototype that will allow them to test their ideas.

This is where the rubber meets the road for engineers, as they must stay within constraints that are imposed on them, including cost, time tools, resources, and many more. Engineers must also keep in mind that their solutions must be secure and efficient so they can be used in the real world.
