Transcript of New - Changing the world with engineering

design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Myth busting
Engineering is involved in everything we use!
Changing the world
with Engineering

What do Engineers do?
Civil Engineering

"So far in my degree I have learnt to design roads, water treatment plants and even whole towns. In my labs I have built concrete beams, mini-bridges and cleaned dirty water to make it drinkable. "
Mechanical Engineering

All new cars are now computerised, and we're seeing more electric cars that are powered by a rechargeable battery rather than fuel!
Electrical Engineering
These Engineers design
and maintain all our
electronic technology, from
our phones, laptops and
playstations to huge power
station generators.
Notice that when you tilt
your phone the screen
Electrical engineers
designed the sensors
to enable that to happen!
(As well as the phone itself)

Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineers convert raw materials into useful everyday products!

Did you know that plastic bottles, clothes and paint are all made from the same starting material?!
Bio- engineering
Is designing a solution to biological problems!

Marine Engineering
is the design and construction of any marine vessel or structure
Ocean clean-up array
We're going to have a look at the different types of Engineering, but keep in mind that there is a lot of crossover between them!
Is the design, construction and use of machines, from individual parts and devices to cars, trains and planes.
Think about how each engineering
discipline can change the world we live in today...
Google Glass
A new mega city?
Levitating train!
Bio-engineers are working on a bionic limb that links information back to the brain (with electrodes connected to our nerves), so people can sense temperature and pressure and ultimately regain control.
Kathryn Harder, Electrical engineering
‘I really enjoy Electrical Engineering because of the variety of subjects we cover: physics, maths, programming and business, and the opportunity to design our own projects.’
Misconceptions of Engineering:
Heating engineer

Boiler engineer

Engineering at University is very different to these professions, as you are involved in the DESIGN of new and innovative projects.
Energy Ball

Electrical engineers need to understand how to build many different types of circuits.
TASK: Build a circuit with the energy ball
What happens if you break the circuit?
Will it work with a different material? Why?
This Japanese floating bullet train has undergone it's first successful trial run.

It works by electromagnetic replusion between the bottom of the train and the tracks. This reduces the FRICTION, cutting down the time of the journey (from 90 to 40 mins) and increases the speed (to 311mph).
University prospectuses
Friction is one of the forces that plays a huge part in the understanding of this new technology.
TASK: Try to pull apart the prospectuses.
Why can't they be pulled apart?
Phoebe - Civil Engineering
Final Task:
Build a bridge!
Using the K'nex construct a bridge with your group. If it can withstand the weight your bridge is successful.
New prototype bionic arm
James' arm is customizable.

As technology is developing so quickly, this will be available to the public in only a few years time.
What makes a good bridge?

1) Even weight distribution (no stress at once single point)

2) Triangular units - strongest shape as their geometry is locked into place

3) Repeating units - adds stability and symmetry

Millau Viaduct (France) is the highest bridge in the world
repeating units

Triangular shapes

Golden Gate bridge - San Francisco

Even weight distribution

Tyne bridge
Sometimes the simplest designs are the best!




Which Type of Engineering is this?
"Designs and develops the processes that alter raw materials into required products. Focuses on changing the state of a substance to turn it into something else, for example making plastic from oil."

Which Type of Engineering is this?
"This course can include developing and building transport systems so we can get around, from roads and bridges to railways and airports."

Which Type of Engineering is this?
"The design, development and maintenance of the equipment used at sea and on board vessels."
Which Type of Engineering is this?
"Develop components and machinery that are used in a huge range of industries."
Which Type of Engineering is this?
"Deals with a wide range of components from tiny microchips to car parking sensors to huge power stations."

Chemical engineers will even design the equipment and processes required for the production of food such as chocolate
