The engineering process is a set of steps used by engineers to solve the problem. This includes finding the goal, determining constraints, designing and building, as well as testing. This is an important part of any project at TWI and it helps us ensure that our projects meet the highest quality and safety standards. This is particularly crucial for New York City projects as they must be in compliance with strict standards.

In this phase, students study the issue to better understand the challenge and gather data. It’s an open-ended, centered on the student method that shifts the focus of the classroom away from traditional science instruction.

At this point, students come up with ideas about how they can solve the issue. This can be done by using software, whiteboard writing, or discussions. It’s okay if some ideas do not work. You can try other methods and test them.

After studying and re-thinking the results, the team chooses an option to design and build. This could be printed on paper, using CAD software, or even through the creation of a prototype that is physical or virtual. This is a great step for students since they will be able to create something tangible to help them to test their solutions.

Engineers have to be aware because they are bound by limitations such as time and cost, tools, and resources. Engineers must also keep in mind that their solutions have to be secure and effective to be able to be utilized in real life.
