  • Bachelor's Degree Programs In Architectural Engineering
    1,036 words
    There are 25 major specialties in engineering that are recognized by professional societies. In any one of those 25 specialties, the goal of the engineer is the same. The goal is to be able to come up with a cost effective design that aids people in the tasks they face each day. Whether it be the coffee machine in the morning or the roads and highways we travel, or even the cars we travel in, it was all an idea that started with an engineer. Someone engineered each idea to make it the best solut...

    March 13, 2000 Research Paper Civil Engineering Throughout my lifetime, I have never had to think very much about the working world and everything that went with it. All through high school I took classes I liked or thought would be interesting to me, but never thought that all of those classes were preparing me for what was to come. Before I knew it, it was time to go to college. The four years of high school had flown by and now it was time to choose a major for college. I had never given much...

  • Engineer's First Priority Of Their Design
    1,002 words
    The Kansas City, MO Hyatt Regency Hotel was designed to be open and airy, with a lobby consisting of an open atrium that extended to the top of the building. On one side of the building were the hotel rooms, and on the other side were the meeting and conference facilities. To facilitate the transfer of guests from their rooms to the conference facilities, walkways were to be built on each floor to connect the two. To maintain the open feel of the atrium, the walkways were suspended from the ceil...

  • Skill Profile Of Design Engineers
    567 words
    Moreover, the skill-profile of design engineers has to change. They have to unlearn old skills and learn new ones. For example, skills to convert 2-D drawings to 3-D are no longer needed; instead, new solid modelling skills, comparable to working with clay models, are required. Moreover, designers need a fair amount of knowledge of other functional groups. In order to be able to check a virtual design upon functional requirements, some manufacturing knowledge is indispensable (Mals on, 2001). Si...
  • New And Innovative Design For A Heat

  • Design Of The Suspension Bridge
    818 words
    The design of the suspension bridge is pleasing to the eye, but its design is complex and convoluted. A suspension bridge is a bridge where cables are strung across whatever obstacle it happens to be and the deck is suspended from these cable. Designing abridge is a difficult task that causes many engineers to become quite uneasy. The engineers get that uneasy feeling because once the bridge is built it's there for a long time, and an unfortunate error of judgment is on view for all to see. Much...
