...Civil Engineering has been an aspect of life since the beginnings of human existence. The earliest practices of Civil engineering may have commenced between 4000 and 2000 BC in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia (Ancient Iraq) when humans started to abandon a nomadic existence, thus causing a need for the construction of shelter. During this time, transportation became increasingly important leading to the development of the wheel and sailing. Until modern times there was no clear distinction between civil engineering and architecture, and the term engineer and architect were mainly geographical variations referring to the same person, often used interchangeably. The construction of Pyramids in Egypt (circa 2700-2500 BC) might be considered the first instances of large structure constructions. In the 18th century, the term civil engineering was coined to incorporate all things civilian as opposed to military engineering. The first engineering school, The National School of Bridges and Highways, France, was opened in 1747. The first self-proclaimed civil engineer was John Smeaton who constructed the Eddystone Lighthouse. In 1771, Smeaton and some of his colleagues formed the Smeatonian Society of Civil Engineers, a group of leaders of the profession who met informally over dinner. Though there was evidence of some technical meetings, it was little more than a social society. In 1818, world’s first engineering society, the Institution of Civil Engineers was founded in London, and......

...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......

...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......

...abrasives belong to the fine ceramics category. The category of coarse ceramics includes, for example, brick or conventional refractory materials. It also refers to  refers to ceramic products for engineering applications. High-performance ceramic is defined in DIN V ENV 12 212 as a "highly-developed, high-strength ceramic material, which is primarily non-metallic and inorganic and possesses specific functional attributes." The concept high-performance ceramics is primarily used to distinguish them from traditional ceramics based on clay, including tableware, sanitary ware, walls and floor tiles as well as ceramics for civil engineering. This definition agrees with that of the "Japanese Fine Ceramics Association". Structural or construction ceramics are terms that have not yet been standardised, referring to materials that in some way must withstand mechanical stresses, bending or pressure for example. Functional ceramics are high-performance ceramics in which the inherent characteristics of the material play an active role, for example ceramic parts which possess specific electric, magnetic, dielectric or optical properties. Electrical ceramics are high-performance ceramics that are applied because of their specific electric or electronic characteristics. Electrical engineering applications make use primarily of the excellent insulating characteristics and mechanical strength. The electronics industry also takes advantage of characteristics such as ferroelectric......

...ENB100 - ENGINEERING & SUSTAINABILITY Progress Report (due in Wk12 Tutorial) ! Student Name: ! Student # Your task: Your role as a professional engineer will require you to assess multiple solutions for a single problem. Often, the suitability of the solution has little to do with the price or the provider but more to do with ‘fitness for purpose’. As such, it is vital that a structured process is used to identify the most appropriate solution. This process is called an evaluation matrix. ! Your task is two-fold. Firstly, in your own words, you need to define the term ‘evaluation matrix’. Make sure your definition relates to the engineering context and provide robust references. Secondly, you need to develop suitable criteria for use in your final project. Ensure you use clear and measurable criteria that take into account the client needs. ! ! ! 1. Definition An Evaluation matrices are used in the engineering profession as a tool to evaluate a number of different types of options against a prioritised criteria. If the design ideas do not meet the criteria then two different levels of the evaluation matrices can be used. The first level effectively acts as a filter with each different option evaluating it against the mandatory criteria. (UCLA, 1-2, 2014) para The design options that meed these mandatory criteria then go on to the second level with involves them being evaluated against prioritised criteria. This is vital this......

Engineering Solutions in a Global Economy

...Homework 4 The Global Impact of Safety Jonathan Shuty, Spenser Tripp, Caitlyn Hagarty, Yuliia Kapeliushna Part 1: In the modern Western style industrial setting, the culture has shifted from blind efficiency in production to putting major emphasis on safety and welfare of workers. The Industrial Revolution has long since passed. Manufacturing facilities have had plenty of time to stabilize their processes so that changing them to consider the safety of the worker would not cause an unacceptable drop in profits. Social pressure from the working class also contributed to this shift, as unsafe working conditions were no longer a necessary reality of the industry. Unfortunately, this emphasis on safe work practices is not a worldwide standard. Countries that have more recently started to become industrialized are trying to catch up, and this puts emphasis on production above all else. As a result, this can often lead to work environments that would be utterly unacceptable in the west. A good example of this lack of concern for worker safety is the Kader Toy Factory fire in May 1993. The Kader Toy Factory, located outside Bangkok, Thailand, manufactured toys and dolls, mostly made from plastic (ILO, 2011). Before the tragedy in 1993, the company experienced multiple, usually small fires. One fire, in 1989, completely demolished the facility. It didn’t reopen until 1990. The company was still repairing a building from fire damage when the May 1993 fire took 188 workers’......

...Task 1 Why does engineering equipment fail, what happens when it does and what can we do about it? Equipment’s fails because certain parts of it fail first and that prevents the whole process from working. It is important to understand the problem before any maintenance. There are a lot of reasons it could fail because of the age of the equipment and parts need to be changed or if the equipment vibrates nuts and bolts can be loosen and parts can fall apart. When this happens the machine needs to be stopped and maintained. Age is very important if the machine has been used for a very long time the efficiency and the quality wouldn’t be as good as a new one, a machine has a certain life span for example on a car the timing belt must be replaced after every 50,000 miles. Wear could lead to a fault in a machine because parts come into contact with each other for example a cars break pad. Corrosion in certain materials takes longer than others like aluminium, when a part of a machine corrodes it degrade and can cause failures. Raw materials such as oil and compressed air can run equipment’s. If something different unwanted to the equipment is in it, it can affect the way the machine works. For example water in a petrol tank will cause a car to break down and this is a fouling. Lack of maintenance can cause a fail, routine maintenance such as cleaning and lubrication. This cause for example in a factory that is manufacturing can will stop the line and check the cars in that line......

...• 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.

Global Supply Chain Re-Engineering and Proposed Turnkey Strategy

...Global supply chain re-engineering and proposed turnkey strategy The difference between current supply chain and the proposed turnkey strategy The current supply chain was performing sub-optimally compared to both the industry benchmarks and internal aspirations. Its processes and infrastructure were determined to be manually intensive and inefficiency while the proposed turnkey strategy would have a radicle consolidation of suppliers, major lead time reductions and far reaching impacts on product development. The proposed turnkey strategy would improve the production planning and sales forecasting strategy which initially had been tedious and focused on the short term without extensive use of strategic account management and market intelligence. The proposed strategy pirard would use a more accurate forecast. In this new approach, the turnkey strategy, Elizabeth Arden would seek to consolidate the suppliers and the suppliers that remained would be given additional responsibilities for undertaking the entire manufacturing process from materials procurement to product completion thus simplifying procurement efforts. On the other hand, the initial supply chain, individual purchase orders were made to many independent suppliers. Elizabeth Arden hoped to become more flexible and have lower risk with a diversified independent supplier base. What the change will mean for suppliers and current employees and their roles The changes which included far reaching impact on......

Is Genetic Engineering the Answer to Ending Global Hunger?

...Is genetic engineering the answer to ending global hunger? Jennifer E. Law SCI 207 Haleh Keshtkar February 27, 2012 The controversial statement that genetic engineered food may be the solution to hunger in the world is gaining more and more interest by the media in today’s society. On the one hand, supporters of biotechnology believe that genetic engineered food ensures and sustains food security around the world as the population increases, but on the other hand, there are many concerns involved with genetically modified food. In fact, a lot of food that we eat on a daily basis contains genetically modified ingredients and usually without our knowledge. Yet, is genetic engineered food safe? Moreover, do we really need genetic modified food? Many researchers do not consider biotechnology the solution to hunger but they believe that poverty is the cause of famine in numerous countries. As a result, biotechnology raises various questions among citizens and farmers since there is the assumption that genetic engineered food is the key to eliminating global starvation (Genetically, 2010). Before weighing the pros and cons of genetic engineered food, it is essential to understand what is genetic engineered food? “Genetic engineering is a laboratory technique used by scientists to change the DNA of living organisms” (What is genetically, 2010). Scientists have learned that there are ways of changing the structure of DNA in living organisms and build customized DNA.......
