Design Engineering

The engineering design is defined as: the process of devising a system, component, or process to meet desired needs. It is a decision making process (often iterative) in which the basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering sciences are applied to convert resources optimally to meet a stated objective. Among the fundamental elements of the design process are the establishment of objectives and criteria, synthesis, analysis, construction, testing and evaluation.

PROJECT 1 - Last year we examined the build and design of a skateboard. This year we will add challenge to our design production.

 

With environmental and re-usable materials in the forefront of design, the cardboard bike has become a hot topic of conversation. You will have the opportunity to work in a group of 3-4 people to come up with your own cardboard bicycle.

 

Check out the following design concept at: http://www.triplepundit.com/2013/07/cardboard-bike-crowdfunding-campaign-failed/

Here you will have a chance to come up with your own design for a new product that has a functional scientific purpose.
