SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ENGINEERING: SOLVING PROBLEMS THROUGH SCIENCE

According to ABET, or the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology: "Engineering is the profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences, gained by study, experience, and practice, is applied with judgment to develop ways to utilize, economically, the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of humankind." There is considerable overlap between science and engineering. Research teams often consist of one or more engineers who work closely with scientists to design and build some of the tools required for lab experiments or to test theories in practice. Engineers are motivated to improve our quality of life; here are some examples: making renewable energy economical, improving health informatics, making better medicines, improving automobile safety, and improving urban infrastructure. Engineers typically develop new products using several steps - Design phase, testing, production and maintenance. During the design phase, engineers specify the functional requirements; design and test the components; produce a prototype; and evaluate the overall effectiveness, cost, reliability, and safety. This process is common in the development of many different products such as chemicals, computers, energy sources, and transportation. During testing, production and maintenance, engineers determine if any failures of the components are likely and where they occur. This is where they estimate the time and cost required to produce a product. In these processes, engineers use computers to create designs, analyze functionality, and simulate how a machine, structure, or system operates.

SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ENGINEERING: BRIDGES BY DESIGN

Engineers and architects are creating bridges that combine the best of both art and design. Bridges are no longer just a tool to get from one side of the river to the other. Some bridges have the goal of being aesthetically pleasing and efficient for pedestrians. Others rely on the cantilever design to span a distance equivalent to three and a half jumbo jets. Bridges are often classified by their structure and how the forces of tension, compression, bending, torsion and shear are distributed. In this program, students will learn how designs vary depending on the function of the bridge, the environmental factors, the materials and technology used to construct them.

STEM CAREERS IN TWO YEARS: ADVANCED MANUFACTURING AND APPLIED ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY

Lasers, robotics, computerized design and drafting-are we talking about what goes on at NASA? A particle physics lab? The kind of place that requires a Ph.D. on your resume? No, this is what students can expect to get involved in after only two years of training for a career in advanced manufacturing or applied engineering technology. Tony Girafalco, executive vice-president of the Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center in Pennsylvania, describes the opportunities a job seeker can look forward to and how to take advantage of them. Viewers will also draw inspiration from three in-the-field success stories. Alan is an advanced machinist and programmer for The Rodon Group after becoming a certified tool and die maker. Anthony, a 3D CAD draftsperson for Southco, earned an associates degree in mechanical engineering technology. And Ian, after earning his associates degree, became an electronics engineering technician at Nielson Kellerman.

SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ROBOTICS: ADVANCES IN ENGINEERING

Almost fifty years ago the first industrial robot was "employed" in an automobile assembly plant. Robots are regularly used for hazardous, super-heavy and difficult tasks in manufacturing, agriculture, entertainment, medicine, and space exploration. Welding robots with touch sensing and seam tracking abilities increase assembly plant efficiency, while robotic surgery results in less pain, quicker recovery and shorter hospital stays. NASA's robotic rovers Spirit and Opportunity are mapping the terrain and searching for evidence of water on Mars. Honda Motor Company's humanoid robot, ASIMO, can walk, run, recognize people and identify sounds and voices.

SHOW ME SCIENCE - TECHNOLOGY: ENGINEERING - DUMMY & ROBOT HEROES

As human stand-ins, dummies and their mobile counterparts, robots have been sparing us risk to life and limb and saving our lives for decades. Perhaps the best known examples of these are crash test dummies, which have allowed automotive engineers to analyze what happens to the human body in collisions. The information obtained in these tests has helped them design safety advances like seat belts, child car seats, air bags and cars that absorb the greater energy of a crash impact. This program shows the growing sophistication of dummies and robots as well as their use in many fields of product and safety testing, disaster and rescue training, manufacturing and hazardous materials handling. Includes suggestions for careers in this field of study.

DIGITAL PRODUCT DESIGN: DESIGN FOR QUALITY, MANUFACTURING, ASSEMBLY & DISASSEMBLY PRINCIPLES, AND AN INKJET PRINTER GREEN ENGINEERING DISASSEMBLY USE CASE

In order to achieve professional quality product process and service system design engineering skills, besides a strong analytical, digital design and digital manufacturing assembly engineering foundation, one needs to learn basic and often very simple design rules. One of the best ways to learn these rules is to disassemble and analyze various products, try to understand the design manufacturing assembly processes followed, and also learn from mistakes.

In this program Professor Ranky introduces, and to some extent illustrates several basic product design, process design, design for quality, assembly disassembly, and other design rules with simple and practical examples whilst disassembling an inkjet printer on screen. In particular, the rules and principles discussed with examples include: design for quality, maintenance, assembly, disassembly, green eco-friendly design issues, cost, risk, the concept of designing components, modules, and systems that can be assembled, as well as disassembled, material selection issues, design for the environment, the principle of 'z' stacking for assembly disassembly, modular design principles, some part handling, and feeding issues, automated assembly and disassembly challenges, and others.
