  • Slide 1
  • Engineering Disciplines Foundations of Engineering and Technology Fall 2011
  • Slide 2
  • Engineering I Egyptian Engineers Imhotep: Engineer to King Joser Engineers to the Kushite Kings Pyramids, Dams, and Canals Mesopotamian Engineers First Canals built by the Sumerians of Southern Mesopotamia Home and Wall construction Assyrians and iron weaponry and the four wheeled war machine/wagons Aqueducts and paved streets of King Engineer Sennacherib Greek Engineers Borrowed concepts of construction from Assyrians and Mesopotamians 1 st Metal Structure is attributed to the Greeks. Golden age engineer Archytas of Taras, pure scientist and engineer. Mechanical Bird that flew by compressed air.
  • Slide 3
  • Engineering I Greek Engineers: Hellenistic Greeks were a mixture of Greek and Oriental people. Archimedes and the science of hydrostatics was a result of Hellenistic Greek. Roman Engineers: Romans were also adaptive engineers; building off others ideas. Most were civil engineers developing roads, bridges, etc. Made significant advances in architecture and everyday machinery. Kingdom of Anatolia Central Indirect Heating Discovery of Cement! Use of the waterwheel, trusses and the pendentive.
  • Slide 4
  • Engineering I The Oriental Engineers: Centered on religious activities. Indian Skills with iron works Arabic Skills with water clocks and waterwheels and the first practical windmill. Chinese Suspension and cable stayed bridges, canals and dams. The European Engineers: Middle Ages was the height of invention. Advances in cathedrals..the flying buttress 18 th century advanced hydraulics, canal building. Renaissance saw the advent of engineering schools and engineering became a defined discipline.
  • Slide 5
  • Discussion Has your idea of the field of engineering changed now that we have discussed it? If yes, how?
  • Slide 6
  • What is Engineering to Engineering Students? http://www.egfi-k12.org/whats-new/e-tube/- strong-what-does-engineering-mean-to-you- strong- http://www.egfi-k12.org/whats-new/e-tube/- strong-what-does-engineering-mean-to-you- strong-
  • Slide 7
  • Careers in Engineering REVIEW ABET The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. Engineering defined as: The profession which the knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences, gained by study, experience, and practice, is applied with judgment to develop ways to use, economically, the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind. Using materials and forces for the good of humankind.
  • Slide 8
  • Interesting Engineering!
  • Slide 9
  • Careers in Engineering Discipline: A specific area practiced by an engineer. They do overlap. There are several sub-categories under each of the major headings. Role: The jobs within the disciplines that are held by engineers. Research, Inventor, Supervisor, Human Resources, Sales, Financial Management Example: Degreed Mechanical Engineer that is the head of Sales for Ford Motor Corporation.
  • Slide 10
  • Engineering & Engineering Technology Degree Options in Georgia http://www.egfi-k12.org/whats- new/e-tube/student-advice-on- pursuing-engineering
  • Slide 11
  • Engineering Degrees (U Sys GA) GA Tech Aerospace Engineering; Biomedical Engineering; Chemical Engineering; Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering; Civil Engineering; Computer Engineering; Electrical Engineering; Environmental Engineering; Industrial Engineering; Materials Science and Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; Nuclear and Radiological Engineering; Polymer and Fiber Engineering Textile Sciences and Engineering; Georgia State University Construction Engineering; Mechatronics Engineering; Software Engineering Georgia Southern University Civil Engineering; Electrical Engineering; Mechanical Engineering Engineering Studies* Armstrong Atlantic State University Engineering Studies-* Minor in Engineering Savannah State University Engineering Studies-* Minor in Engineering University of Georgia Agricultural Engineering; Biochemical Engineering; Biological Engineering Computer Systems Engineering; Environmental Engineering; Civil Engineering Mechanical and electrical engineering majors will follow in the fall of 2013 *The Engineering Studies Program supports the Regents Engineering Transfer Program (RETP); the program leads to an engineering degree from Georgia Tech.
  • Slide 12
  • Engineering Technology Degrees (U Sys GA) NOT CURRENT INFORMATION Southern Polytechnic State Apparel/Textile Engineering Technology; Architectural Engineering Technology; Civil Engineering Technology; Computer Engineering Technology; Electrical Engineering Technology; Industrial Engineering Technology; Mechanical Engineering Technology; Surveying and Mapping; Telecommunications Engineering Technology Fort Valley State Agriculture Engineering Technology; Electronics Engineering Technology Georgia Southwestern State Computer Science Technology Savannah State Civil Engineering Technology; Computer Science Technology; Electronics Engineering Technology
  • Slide 13
  • In the State of GA BOTH DEGREES CAN LEAD TO LICENSURE Engineering and engineering technology are recognized as distinct points on the technical occupational spectrum. Different criteria for the two degree programs Engineering Technology accreditation criteria prohibits program from claiming that it gives its graduates the equivalent of an engineering education. Pass rates based on Engineering test takers, exclude Engineering Technology degrees National Society of Professional Engineers ABET Accreditation National Conference of Examiners
