The Engineering Process at TWI

The engineering process is the sequence of steps that engineers must follow to come up with a solution to the issue. This process includes identifying an objective, determining constraints and creating, designing, and testing. This is an integral component of every project at TWI. It allows us to ensure that our projects meet high-performance and safety standards. This is particularly crucial for New York City projects as they have to meet stringent requirements.

Students investigate the problem to better understand the problem and collect data. This is an open, student-centered approach to science that reorients classrooms away from traditional instruction.

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

After reviewing and brainstorming the findings After analyzing and brainstorming, the team decides on a solution to design and build. This can be done on paper or with CAD software via a physical or virtual prototype. This is a great step for students as they can create tangible prototypes that enable them to test their solutions.

This is where the rubber meets the road for engineers because they must stay within constraints that are imposed upon them, such as cost, time, tools, resources and more. Engineers must also be aware that their solutions should be safe and effective to be able engineering consultancies to be utilized in the real world.
