This session will present participants with an overview of the civil engineering discipline as well as the opportunity to conduct a short, fun experiment that is related to civil engineering.
If you find yourself searching for better ways to do things, you’re thinking like an industrial engineer. Industrial engineers use their knowledge of science, mathematics, and engineering—along with design, computer science, operations management, and other disciplines—to design systems that are simpler, higher quality, a better value, safer, and more efficient.
Have you ever wondered what was in your laundry detergent or how the fabric of your athletic shirt was made? Or who designs batteries to be used in space? Those are just a few examples of items that were probably impacted by chemical engineers. Chemical engineers solve problems to create products that people depend on every day and to improve the products and processes of tomorrow. And they do it by applying knowledge of disciplines from physics, chemistry, and mathematics to microbiology, biochemistry, and economics.
Engineers work to solve the difficult problems that face our society. Whether it’s building a bridge to cross a river, creating a new machine to manufacture cars, or fitting a huge amount of technology into a smartphone, an engineer’s work can leave a lasting impact on society.
