Concepts of Engineering Beside will be the schedule of the next 9 weeks leading up to Christmas. Please remain on time and schedule as it relates our work! Weeks 1&2 (10-20-14 to 10-31-14) Defining engineering, its branches, types, and subtypes (2 minor grades, 1 each week) Start of week 2 (10-27/28-14 (Test (major) Weeks 3,4, &5 (11-3-14 to 11-21-14) Work independently on your Engineering PowerPoint Presentation Portfolio (I recommend keeping this on a thumb drive, work will be checked weekly for a minor) Assign Final 11-15-14, due 12-12-14 Start Week 5 (11-17/18-14(test (Major) Weeks 7&8 (12-1-14 to 12-12-14) Present your PowerPoint Presentations to the Class (Major) Week 9 (12-15-14 to 12-19-14) Finals
ENGINEERING What is engineering? Find me the definition
ENGINEERING What is engineering? Engineering (from Latin ingenium, meaning "cleverness" and ingeniare, meaning "to contrive, devise") is the application of scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to invent, design, build, maintain, and improve structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes. The discipline of engineering is extremely broad, and encompasses a range of more specialized fields of engineering, each with a more specific emphasis on particular areas of applied science, technology and types of application.Latinscientific economicinventdesignprocessesfields of engineering The American Engineers' Council for Professional Development (ECPD, the predecessor of ABET)  has defined "engineering" as:American Engineers' Council for Professional DevelopmentABET  The creative application of scientific principles to design or develop structures, machines, apparatus, or manufacturing processes, or works utilizing them singly or in combination; or to construct or operate the same with full cognizance of their design; or to forecast their behavior under specific operating conditions; all as respects an intended function, economics of operation or safety to life and property.
Now go to my webpage to get the template for your Engineering Lookup. What are the 6 branches of engineering with definitions?
Engineering What are the 6 main engineering branches?
Engineering ChemicalInterdisciplinary Civil Electrical Mechanical Systems
Now that you have the branches, use your template to look up the types and sub-types with definitions
Geotechnical Mining Foundation Environmental Ecological Fire Protection Sanitary Municipal or Urban Structural Earthquake Wind Architectural Ocean Water Resourse Hydraulic River Coastal Groundwater Transport Traffic Highway Railway Systems
Aerospace Aeronautics Astronautics Agricultural Bioprocess Food Aquaculture Appied Automation/controls/mechatronics/robotics Computer aided drawing and design (CADD) Construction Electronics General Graphics Nanotechnology Energy Solar Wind Biological Biomedical Genetic Biochemical Tissue Protein Building Services Mechanical HVAC Refridgeration Plumbing/public health (water & drainage) Electrical Artificial & emergency lighting ICT: Comm., phones, IT networks Low Voltage Lightning Protection Security and alarms Vertical transport ( elevators, etc) Fire Natural Lighting Building Facades Energy supply (gas, electric, etc) Industial Manufacturing Component System Construction Textile Safety Reliability Chemical Nano-Engineering Mechatronics Robotics Instrumentation Avionics Petroleum Reservoir Drilling Production
Now over the next 3 weeks you are going to make an Engineering portfolio in a PowerPoint Presentation. You will provide a picture for each of the branches, types, and sub-types of engineering with a description and a reason for why that picture falls under that type of engineering. You will have 3 week to do this. At the conclusion, everyone in class will present their PowerPoint to the class and will be graded by your peers.(Major 60% Mr Sheehan, 40% the average of the class.
