The engineering process is a series of steps used by engineers to solve a problem. This involves identifying an objective, determining constraints and creating, designing and testing. This is a critical element 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 meet strict requirements.

In this phase students look into the issue they’re facing in order to comprehend what the problem is and gather data. It’s a flexible, student-centered method that shifts the focus of the classroom away from traditional science instruction.

At this stage, students brainstorm ideas about how they can solve the problem. This is done through discussions using a whiteboard, writing on it or using software. Some ideas might not be successful, but that’s OK because it gives them the opportunity to try different ideas and find the most effective solution.

After studying and re-thinking the results After analyzing and brainstorming, the team decides on the best solution to design and construct. This can be done on paper or with CAD software via a physical or virtual prototype. This is a fantastic step for students, since they can create tangible prototypes that let them test their ideas.

Here is where engineers need to be cautious because they are governed by limitations like time cost, tools and resources. Engineers also need to keep in mind that their ideas need to be secure and effective in order to be used in the real world.
