The engineering process is a set of steps engineers use to solve the problem. This process includes finding the goal of the project, determining constraints, designing and building, as well as testing. This is an essential part of every project at TWI and it helps us to ensure that our projects have high performance and safety standards. This is particularly important for New York City projects as they must meet strict requirements.

During this phase students investigate the issue to better understand the problem and collect data. This is an open and student-centered approach to science that reorients classrooms away from traditional instruction.

Students brainstorm ways to solve the issue. This is accomplished through discussions, writing on a whiteboard, or using software. It’s okay if a few ideas aren’t working. They can try other solutions and experiment with them.

After analysing the results of their research and brainstorming, the team decides on a design and construct. This can be on paper, using CAD software, or through a prototype that could be physical or virtual. This is an excellent step for students, as they can make an actual prototype that will allow them to test their solutions.

Here is where engineers need to be aware because they are subject to constraints such as time cost, tools and resources. Engineers should also keep in mind that their solutions must to be safe and effective to be effective in real life.
