Title: CHAPTERS 2


1
CHAPTERS 23
  • Engineering Majors

ELEC 104, Fall 2010 Dr. McKinney
2
Engineers and Scientists
  • Scientists seek technical answers to understand
    natural phenomenon
  • Engineers study technical problems with a
    practical application always in mind
  • For example
  • Scientists study atomic structure to understand
    the nature of matter engineers study atomic
    structure to make smaller and faster microchips

3
The Engineer and the Engineering Technologist
  • Main difference between the two is
  • Engineers design and manufacture machines and
    systems, while engineering technologists have the
    technical know-how to use and install the
    machines properly
  • An example
  • The technologist identifies the equipment
    necessary to assemble a new CD player the
    engineer designs said CD player

4
What do Engineers do?
  • Three variables
  • Discipline/Major
  • Position/Function
  • Industry

5
Engineering Functions
  • Design, Development, Research, Test, Analysis,
    Production, Sales, Technical Support
  • Get into eight groups
  • Develop 2 bullet points describing the
    engineering function you have been assigned

6
Design Engineer
  • Largest number of engineers employed
  • Responsible for shape and specifications of
    components
  • Safety, reliability and integrity of the
    components
  • Requires coordination with all other engineers

7
Development Engineer
  • Take the knowledge from researchers and apply it
    to a specific application
  • Incorporate findings into prototypes to test
    feasibility for use in the next generation of
    products.

8
Research Engineer
  • Perform investigations with experiments and
    computers.
  • Work in a university or National Lab environment.
  • Typically requires a PhD.

9
Test Engineer
  • Verify the integrity and reliability of products
    before introduction to the public
  • Simulate conditions that a product will be
    subjected to in typical use throughout its life

10
Analysis Engineer
  • Uses mathematical models and computational tools
    to provide information to design, development,
    and research engineers
  • Typically specialists in a technology area
    important to production such as heat transfer,
    fluid flow, vibrations, etc

11
Production Engineer
  • Turn designs into large scale production as
    efficiently as possible
  • Responsible for maintenance of machines and the
    inventory and supplies

12
Sales Engineer
  • Trained to identify which products are right for
    the customer
  • Technical background to understand the customers
    needs and to answer questions and concerns

13
Technical Support Engineer
  • Specify installations and set-ups of products
  • Trained to troubleshoot and fix technical problems

14
Engineering Majors
  • Biomedical, Electrical, Computer, Chemical,
    Civil Environmental, Materials, Aerospace,
    Mechanical
  • Rearrange into eight different groups
  • Develop 2 bullet points describing the
    engineering major you have been assigned

15
Biomedical
  • Application of engineering principles to
    biological systems to meet the needs of the
    medical community
  • Work with genetics to produce bioengineered
    products

16
Electrical
  • Design and develop electronic circuits
  • Work in biomedical field developing non-intrusive
    diagnostic techniques
  • Work with transmission and distribution of power

17
Computer
  • Focused on design of computer hardware and
    software as well as personal and commercial
    security
  • Develop and design electronics to interface with
    computers
  • Similar to computer scientists but focus more on
    the hardware

18
Chemical
  • Take what chemists do in the lab and apply the
    fundamental engineering, physics, and chemical
    principles to it

19
Civil Environmental
  • Concerned with form and function, appearance and
    integrity of buildings and other structures
  • Environmental engineers focus on waste management
    and cleaning of contaminated sites and to reduce
    or eliminate harmful waste

20
Materials
  • Develop new materials to meet the needs of
    society as well as the processes that create them
  • Work to ensure that a material meets the
    performance needs of its intended application by
    designing testing procedures to ensure
    requirements are met

21
Aerospace
  • Involved in flights within and also outside of
    the Earths atmosphere
  • Separated into categories of
  • Aerodynamics
  • Propulsion
  • Structures
  • Controls
  • Orbital Mechanics
  • Life Sciences

22
Mechanical
  • Concerned with machines and mechanical devices
  • Involved in design and development, production,
    control, operation of these devices
  • Areas include design and controls and thermal
    sciences
  • Develop computational tools to aid the design
    process

23
Homework (due in one week)
  • Pick three blocks in the cube (Figure 2-1) and
    write a job description for that engineer.
  • None of your blocks can have any similar
    variables.

24
Profiles in Engineering
  • Combine groups into four groups
  • Each group take one of the specified profiled
    engineers
  • Study the bio in the text
  • Present this person to the group
  • What do they do?
  • Where do they fit into the cube?
  • Do they seem to enjoy engineering?
  • Does their life seem to be in balance?

Homework (due in one week)
  • Imagine yourself 10 years from now and type up a
    one page profile in the same format given in the
    book.
