The Engineering Process at TWI

The engineering process is a series of steps engineers use to solve an issue. This involves the identification of an objective setting constraints, creating, designing, and testing. This is an essential part of every project at TWI and it helps us ensure that our projects have high quality and safety standards. This is especially important for New York City project as they have to meet the strictest requirements.

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

Students brainstorm ways to solve the issue. This is done through discussions and writing on a whiteboard, or by using software. Some ideas might not be successful, but that’s OK because it allows them to try different ideas and discover the most effective solution.

After reviewing the results of their research and brainstorming, the team chooses a solution to design and build. This can be done on paper, using CAD software or through a physical or virtual prototype. This is an excellent step for students as they can make an actual prototype that will enable them to test their ideas.

Here is where engineers have to be mindful as they are governed by limitations such as time, cost, tools, and resources. Engineers also have to be aware that their solutions must be safe and effective to be able to be utilized in the real world.
