  4. Engineers in the News • Preparing for the unexpected • Many engineers in government are responsible for preparing for worst-case scenarios: hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods… • Product Engineers…Creating Products for Developing World • Entrepreneurial Design for Extreme Affordability • Simple solutions for urgent or pressing needs • Engineers explore the role of the health care environment in infection prevention and control • Team Approach Improves NY’s Penn Station • Technicians and PE’s work together to improve fire safety • Contractors Build Green Construction Plan • Engineers on Ice • Investigating oil mitigation techniques in extreme temperatures

  5. Systems Engineering

  6. What is Systems Engineering? • Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach to designing and deploying successful systems. It blends engineering, systems thinking, and management topics. SYE addresses the business and technical needs of all stakeholder throughout the entire design process, from concept to production to operations to disposal. (from INCOSE)

  7. Is SyE Related to Industrial Engineering? • Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, materials, and equipment. It draws upon specialized knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences, together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis, to design, specify, predict, and analyze the results obtained from such systems. (from IIE)

  8. SYE is Different From Other Engineering Disciplines • Focused on systems integration • More emphasis on human interaction • Information systems mentality • Broader business orientation • More direct process involvement

  18. Systems Engineering Curriculum Senior Project

  19. Mechatronics Engineering

  20. What is Mechatronics Engineering? • Blends topics from Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science to produce graduates who are able to work effectively in all aspects of • Robotics, • Automated manufacturing, and • The design of mechanical devices with embedded intelligence.

  21. Where do you find Mechatronics? • Automotive • Aerospace • Medical device • Heavy equipment • Many other industries

  22. Mechanical Engineering

  23. What is Mechanical Engineering? • Mechanical engineering is arguably the broadest discipline of engineering. • Application of the principles of mechanics and materials • Applications in thermal/fluid systems & vibrations • Design machines and devices

  24. Manufacturing Aerospace industry Power generation and distribution Automotive design Machine design Alternative energy Robotics and automation Thermal Systems Project Engineer Design Engineer Consulting Engineer Plant Engineer Manufacturing Engineer Process Engineer Supervisor Where do we find MEs?

  25. Civil/Construction Engineering

  26. What is Civil Engineering? Civil engineering is the oldest of the engineering disciplines and involves the planning, design, and construction of facilities essential to modern life. requires rigorous training in basic engineering principles along with the development of skills in the areas of planning and management of construction projects such as highways, bridges, airports, railroads, buildings, dams, and reservoirs. Graduates have the qualifications to enter careers in areas such as, but not limited to, transportation engineering, structural engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, water resource engineering, and construction engineering.

  27. What is Construction Engineering? In this major the traditional areas of Civil Engineering and Construction Management are combined to produce graduates who are able to work effectively in all aspects of the construction industry. Concerns the planning and management of the construction of structures such as highways, bridges, airports, railroads, buildings, dams, and reservoirs. Construction engineering is differentiated from construction management from the standpoint of the level of mathematics, science and engineering used to analyze problems and design a construction process.

  28. Where do we find CEs? Construction companies City and county construction departments State and federal transportation organizations (such as the Georgia Department of Transportation) Civil engineering consulting and design firms Construction Engineer Project Engineer Project Supervisor Construction Manager Design Engineer

  29. Electrical Engineering

  30. What is Electrical Engineering? Electrical engineering is arguably the largest discipline of engineering. Application of the principles of electricity and its use with electrical devices and systems. Nearly every industry utilizes electrical engineers.

  31. Where do we find EEs? Telecommunications Computer engineering Manufacturing Aerospace industry Power generation and distribution Alternative energy Robotics and automation Electrical Engineer Electronics Engineer Project Engineer Field Engineer Hardware Engineer Design Engineer Telecommunications Engineer Software Engineer

  32. Why Study Engineering at SPSU? • We have the only SYE, Construction Engineering, and Mechatronics programs in Georgia • Our faculty are excellent teachers, student-oriented, and professionally active • SPSU has small classes with personal attention (no Graduate Students Teaching) • SPSU students get valuable practical experience through team projects & lab experience • SPSU offers opportunities to get involved in research and student chapters of professional organizations • SPSU has (relatively) low tuition

  33. Additional Resources • International Council on Systems Engineering • Institute of Industrial Engineers • American Society for Healthcare Engineering • National Center for Human Factors Engineering in Healthcare • National Society of Professional Engineers • American Society of Mechanical Engineers • IEEE Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers • Institute of Transportation Engineers
