... courses may also cover fundamental engineering principles and concepts. After completing core course requirements, civil engineering students delve into advanced topics, such as thermodynamics and structural analysis. Courses may include the completion of a design project, in which students assess structural integrity of materials. This may require the use of CAD programs to test their designs. Most programs generally require students to complete laboratory courses in which they analyze substances ranging from soil to concrete. These courses help students identify basic properties of materials, as well as potential problems from using them According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), civil engineers who provide their services to the public must complete professional engineer (PE) state licensing requirements ( Requirements vary by state, but generally include accruing four years of work experience and completing two exams administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors (

...Why I want to be an Engineer There have been different reasons at different stages of my life why I developed a passion for the engineering profession. It started from a youthful age watching my father, who was a mechanical engineer and wanting to emulate him when I got to adulthood. I liked the way he talked about his occupation with great excitement. He tended to travel a lot but also had time to spend with his family. I was impressed with his knowledge of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. He was always helping my older brother with his calculus assignments even though he had been through school for a long time. The engineering profession afforded my father with the resources to provide for his family and to do some philanthropic work as well. There was always something technological being discussed with his friends. In my early years when I wanted to be an engineer, it was always because I just wanted to be like my father, not until I got into school. When I started school, I realized I was very interested in mathematics and the sciences. The tougher the subject, the greater satisfaction I had at the end of the term when I succeeded. I loved working in the science labs and learning how science works. I always wanted to challenge myself with an occupation that will keep me on my toes, so engineering being my first love was an obvious choice. I liked reading about the great inventors and scientists of our time like Sir Isaac Newton, Thomas Edison, The...

... suggest some implications of these areas for engineering ethics in a way that we hope will be provocative for instructors and students alike. We especially welcome comments, criticisms, and suggestions on our work here. REORGANIZATIONS AND ADDITIONS In addition to the changes indicated previously, every chapter has undergone some degree of reorganization and addition. Chapter 2 on responsibility places more emphasis on engineering standards, including the standard of care and design standards. Chapters 3 and 4 have similar content, but the order of presentation of ideas has been altered in ways we believe provide greater clarity to our ideas about framing and resolving ethical problems. Chapter 6 has relatively little change, but Chapter 7, in addition to some reorganizing, has some new material on the new ‘‘capabilities’’ Preface xv approach to risk and disaster analysis. In Chapter 8, we place more emphasis on the importance of understanding the culture of an organization in order to know how to effectively make protests or initiate organizational change. We also introduce Michael Davis’ account of whistleblowing. Chapter 9 sets ethical decisions within the guidelines of the requirements of environmental law, which we believe gives ethical decisions a more realistic context. Chapter 10 has been reorganized to highlight the way in which various social and cultural differences in countries set the context for what we call ‘‘boundary-crossing problems.’’ THE...

.... Conclusion [20] Summarize what you have learned. Do you think the issues [technical, institutional] can be resolved? How do this issue and your proposed analysis fit into a larger societal context? How do you see engineering, as a profession, evolving in the next decade or so? What I’ve learned from the topic is that, the Pegasus pipeline is capable of transporting 96,000 barrels of oil a day from Patoka, Illinois to Nederland, Texas. Last year in the U.S, 364 pipeline spills occurred, resulting in the dumping of 54,000 barrels of oil, according to the Department of Transportation. EPA considers it a serious spill. These are spills that are more difficult to clean. A similar spill in Kalamazoo, became the most expensive onshore pipeline spill in history, much because of the unique behavior of tar sands when it spills. The tar sands crude is a crude that is not similar to the crudes historically moved on the U.S. pipeline systems. It's basically a mixture of very thick bitumen, which is solid at room temperature, and volatile petrochemicals that are very toxic once they reach the air. And once spilled, you have a gas-off of the petrochemicals that expose residents to toxins and the bitumen itself then becomes heavier. If it reaches a water body, it flows underneath it. It's hard to control. Small set of California pipelines that higher-temperature pipelines spill more frequently due to external corrosion than conventional pipelines. If they're over 100 degrees, they......

...Construction Engineering This civil engineering branch deals with the planning, construction and maintenance of structures. Construction engineering is the planning and execution of designs from site development, environmental, structural, transportation and structural engineers. They must ensure that the plans that have been designed by other engineers are implemented to their exact specifications. Construction engineers will supervise field work during the entire project. They are in a sense a cross between an engineer and manager as they will oversee the project from start to finish and handle any problems that come up throughout the duration of the project. Structural Engineering This branch of civil engineering encompasses the structural analysis and design of structures. It is the responsibility of the structural engineer to analyze and design a structure that will safely bear or resist the stresses, forces and loads. The design must satisfy the project specifications while meeting all safety regulations. The structure must endure massive loads as well as natural disasters and climate changes. Geotechnical Engineering In geotechnical engineering the engineer studies soil, foundations and bearing capacities. The engineer will study the behavior of the earth materials and how they will affect a structure that is to be constructed. They will also evaluate pre-existing structures that are showing signs of problems with the earth materials under or near the structure...

... component. Thermal, electrical, mechanical loading and the chemical environment must all be taken into account in this process. Appropriate criteria relevant to each particular case mean that one or more suitable materials out of the wide range of available ceramics can be identified. The materials tables and associated descriptions in the following chapters will be helpful in this process. The ceramic material for the new application must satisfy the technical analysis of the particular problem, must also offer an appropriate price/performance ratio throughout its service life, and may have to offer additional benefits. The drawing is then checked for feasibility of implementation, and optimised for manufacture. The tolerances required are often typical of those for metals, i.e. relatively close for all surfaces. In order to optimise costs it is necessary to distinguish between the general tolerances typical for ceramics, and special tolerances that may be needed for functional surfaces. In a few cases it may also be necessary to consider the functional principles, and therefore perhaps a new design for the assembly. The user will be steered through the process described above by the ceramics manufacturer. After clarifying the technical details, the ceramics manufacturer can choose the optimum production procedure, bearing in mind the length of the production run, and can make a quotation. Ceramics have already proven themselves in a wide variety of applications,......

Engineering engineering, ethical issues occur almost all the time. these issues include obstacles that may or may not be intentional. as engineers we need the mathematics and sciences we take the time to learn, then we use the materials to solve these problems effectively and accurately to make life easier. i couldn't imagine how difficult it would be to build a real tower considering how difficult it was making a wooden one. during the process of building this tower, i had to design and draw to exact measurement a tower that i believed would be strong enough to withstand more weight than the rest of the towers created by my classmates. that was the easy part. i then had to cut the pieces of wood i would need for each wall to the exact size then frame it and glue it all together four times until they dried, using my geometry skills to make forty-five and ninety degree angle cuts. After the waiting process was over i then created another part of the tower called the beams which is basically extra support for the tower. I used a basic double V design to allow maximum strength for the tower and i did this nine times, three for each floor. I then had to pin the entire tower together, slide the beams in, glue the beams while they were in the tower, and place triangular floors while it was still drying. so after all the hard work was done, i simply finished gluing all the walls together and then i added a coating of super glue to the tower and i was finished. Using a software...

... be the very best, and most efficient way to perform a certain task. Frederick Winslow Taylor believed that his system would reduce management and worker strife. Another great influence to Industrial/ Organizational psychology would be a husband and wife team by the names of Frank and Lillian Gilbreth who were from the engineering field, and studied efficient ways of performing task. Frank and Lillian Gilbreth most promising contribution was the time and motion study. Time and motion study which involved measuring the timing of a person’s motions in doing task, and the goal was to find more efficient ways of working with this study. Gilbreth would use a motion picture camera that was adjusted in fractions of minutes so they could time the slightest of motions in their employee. The Gilbreths sought to educate supervisors that all areas of the office should be constantly questioned, and improvements continuously adopted. With this study the Gilbreth’s was the first individual’s to recommend that a surgical nurse would do well and be helpful for the surgeon by handing him surgical instruments that he asked for. Gilbreth also developed a guideline of procedures that was used by the Army and would allow recruits to disassemble and reassemble their weapons blind folded. They both influenced Industrial/Organizational psychology, but Lillian Moller Gilbreth was the very first working woman engineer that holds a PhD. and is considered the “The First Lady of Engineering.

...• Why are you pursuing a degree in Engineering, Architecture, or Technology? As a child, I grew up playing with tools in my dad’s garage. Instead of puzzles, I put together ball bearings. I chose mechanical engineering because I’m a very visual and kinesthetic learner. I like creating things that I can see and hold in my hands. I have always been most interested in math and science, and engineering is a field in which you can apply your knowledge to real life situations. I love problem solving, and the feeling of accomplishment when I manage to find a solution. • Why do you want to be involved in CEAT Student Council? I do not believe in joining organizations or clubs just for the extra line on a resume. I would prefer to devote my time to one cause that matters to me.

Generally it is because of physical hazards which includes excessive noise and vibration, inadequate lighting, exposure to radiation, slippery surfaces, etc., environmental hazards is another reason such pollution, storm, earthquakes, etc., as well as human factors, even no safety regulations and lastly poor communication within, between, and among various trades working on a job site. An accident is defined as an unintended and unplanned occurrence that results in a negative effect. Accident causation theories have been developed in an attempt to predict accidents and thus prevent their occurrence. So far there has not been an accident prevention theory that has been universally accepted. They have however served in some preventative measures in some cases. For the record, an accident is technically anything that happens by chance or misfortune. This definition provides two important points. First, accidents are unavoidable as a whole; the chance of one occurring will virtually always be present. Second, the chance of an accident occurring...
