Polling slide: What is the origin of engineering?

Answer:

  • Engineering has led development since the beginning of time
  • Many of the ‘formal’ engineering groups (electrical, chemical, mechanical, civil) show organization in the 1800’s.

what do aa engineers do

Cool fact

We designed a bike too advanced to be used in the Olympics.

What do AA engineers do?
  • Aeronautics & Astronautics engineers design, develop, test, and help produce commercial and military aircraft, missiles, spacecraft and satellites.
what do bioengineers do
What do Bioengineers do?
  • Bioengineers are concerned with the application of engineering sciences, methods, and techniques to problems in medicine and biology.
    • Prosthetics
    • Drug delivery
    • Artificial tissue and organs
what do cheme s do
What do ChemE’s do?
  • Chemical engineers are concerned with transforming raw materials into useful products, such as gasoline, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, and energy. Environmental processes, such as waste disposal and recycling, are other areas of increasing interest.
what do cive engineers do

Cool fact

CivE placed 5th in the Nation in Concrete Canoe competition

What do CivE engineers do?
  • Civil and environmental engineers plan, design, construct, and manage facilities such as airports, buildings, bridges, dams, water and sewage systems, harbors, and highways.
what do compe s do
What do CompE’s do?
  • Computer engineers design and implement computer hardware and software systems in such diverse areas as communications, manufacturing, robotics, computer graphics, and databases.
what do ee s do
What do EE’s do?
  • Electrical engineers design, produce, and operate devices and systems in power,communications, automatic controls, computer hardware, signal processing, optics, consumer electronics, wireless communications, digital video, integration of computers communications and sensors, robotics and intelligent control.
what do forest engineers do
What do Forest Engineers do?
  • Forest engineers solve problems of resource production and protection of forested lands. The forest engineer designs timber harvest, road construction, watershed protection, and resource enhancement activities over a variety of space and time scales to meet these production and protection goals.
what do ie s do
What do IE’s do?
  • Industrial engineers design effective ways to use people, materials, machines, and energy in manufacturing and other industries.
what do mse engineers do

Cool fact

We designed the heat resistant tiles used on space shuttles.

What do MSE engineers do?
  • Materials Science engineers develop new materials, process methods, equipment, and material uses. They create materials for electronics, furnaces, buildings, computers, and others. They also deal with forensics analysis.
what do me s do

Cool fact

ME’s create and RACE a small formula-style racing car.

What do ME’s do?
  • Mechanical engineers address mechanical devices and systems. Topics include production and use of thermal energy, design and manufacture of cars, boats, and machine tools.
