Engineering Design

CEE 10 is a great class to kick off my 3 years as a Civ E. In this class we forget about the math and science that is so prevalent in the rest of my classes to look at something different.

Engineering Design. So you know the math, you’ve done the calculations, and you have a picture in your head. How do you make that a reality? Well you could build it by yourself, or try to explain in words to others the plan of you project. However, most likely you are going to have to put your plans on paper. This is why CEE 10 is such an important class.

Here I learn to manually draw designs using an old fashion ruler and compass. Then we take to the computers to use Autocad software
To build a model on the computer. I can now create floor plans and model 3D objects. Our next step is to use our newly acquired knowledge in groups to plan out our own version of a redesign of the CEE department.

When people think about engineering they immediately think about math. Most of the time they would be right in saying that engineering is about math. However there is more to it than that. We aren’t mathematicians. We bring math to life through objects and designs and CEE 10, engineering design brings me that much closer to being an engineer.
