The engineering design process is a series of steps that engineers follow to come up with a solution to a problem. It has similarities and differences with the Scientific Method:

why are there two processes
Why are there two processes?
  • Both scientists and engineers contribute to the world of human knowledge, but in different ways. Scientists use the scientific method to make testable explanations and predictions about the world. A scientist asks a question and develops an experiment, or set of experiments, to answer that question. Engineers use the engineering design process to create solutions to problems. An engineer identifies a specific need: Who need(s) what because why? And then, he or she creates a solution that meets the need.

  • In real life, the distinction between science and engineering is not always clear. Scientists often do some engineering work, and engineers frequently apply scientific principles, including the scientific method. Much of what we often call "computer science" is actually engineering—programmers creating new products. Your project may fall in the gray area between science and engineering, and that's OK. Many projects, even if related to engineering, can and should use the scientific method.

Note:
  • However, if the objective of your project is to invent a new product, computer program, experience, or environment, then it makes sense to follow the engineering design process.
slide8

There is no single universally accepted design process.  It seems as though most engineers have their own twist for how the process works.  The process generally starts with a problem and ends with a solution, but the middle steps can vary.

  • One can think of the engineering design process as a recipe for banana bread; it can be made a lot of different ways but it’s usually going to start with bananas and it’s going to end with a loaf of bread.

  • The steps of the engineering design process (EDP) are to:
  • Define the Problem
  • Do Background Research
  • Specify Requirements
  • Brainstorm Solutions
  • Choose the Best Solution
  • Do Development Work
  • Build a Prototype
  • Test and Redesign
