Intro to Engineering - Building Bridges
Transcript of Intro to Engineering - Building Bridges
As an electrical engineer, you could develop components for some of the most fun things in our lives (mP3 players, digital cameras, or roller coasters), as well as the most essential (medical tests or communications systems).
This largest field of engineering encompasses the macro (huge power grids that light up cities, for example), as well as the micro (including a device smaller than a millimeter that tells a car’s airbags when to inflate).As an electrical engineer, you might work on robotics, computer networks, wire-less communications, or medical imaging—areas that are at the very forefront of technological innovation.
As a mechanical engineer, you might develop a bike lock or an aircraft carrier, a child’s toy or a hybrid car engine, a wheelchair or a sailboat—in other words, just about anything you can think of that involves a mechanical process, whether it’s a cool, cutting-edge product or a life-saving medical device.
Mechanical engineers are often referred to as the general practitioners of the engineering profession, since they work in nearly every area of technology, from aerospace and automotive, to computers and biotechnology.
Industrial engineers determine the most effective ways to use people, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product or to provide a service. Sometimes they are called “efficiency experts.”
Manufacturing means making things. Manufacturing engineers direct and coordinate the processes for making things—from the beginning to the end. As businesses try to make products better and at less cost, it turns to manufacturing engineers to find out how. Manufacturing engineers work with all aspects of manufacturing from production control to materials handling to automation. the assembly line is the domain of the manufacturing engineer. Machine vision and robotics are some of the more advanced technologies in the manufacturing engineers’ toolkit.

Civil and Environmental Engineering
What would it feel like to have the expertise to build a school that could withstand an earthquake, a road system that puts an end to chronic traffic jams, or a sports stadium that offers everyone a great view?
As a civil engineer, your job would be to oversee the construction of the buildings and infrastructure that make up our world:
highways, skyscrapers, railways, bridges, and water reservoirs, as well as some of the most spectacular and high-profile of all engineering feats—think of the world’s tallest building, the towering Taipei 101 in Asia, or the Chunnel, the thirty-one-mile-long tunnel beneath the English Channel. Civil engineers are fond of saying that it’s architects who put designs on paper, but it’s engineers who actually get things built.
Everything around us—including us—is made of chemicals. Chemical changes can be used to produce all kinds of useful products. Chemical engineers discover and manufacture better plastics, paints, fuels, fibers, medicines, fertilizers, semiconductors, paper, and all other kinds of chemicals.
Chemical engineers also play an important role in protecting the environment, inventing cleaner technologies, calculating environmental impacts, and studying the fate of chemicals in the environment.

Bioengineers advances the knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine. They improve human health through cross-disciplinary activities that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice.
Bioengineering is the biological or medical application of engineering principles or engineering equipment. It is a relatively new field that has expanded beyond the large-scale efforts like prosthetics and hospital equipment to include engineering at the molecular and cellular level.

Description of Activities
is engineering in a biological context such as the human body, an ecosystem, or a bioreactor. Bioengineering is the “biological or medical application of engineering principles or engineering equipment – also called biomedical engineering.” (Merriam-Webster)
