Introduction to Engineering Design

Engineering context

Engineering design requires creativity, technical skill and perspective. It requires engineers to challenge the status quo, questioning the appropriate of normal processes and procedures.

Engineers today also need to understand the big picture behind engineering in a commercial world to be able to produce effective and sustainable designs.

This webinar focuses on the underlying theory behind engineering design to produce best practice designs.

An experienced engineering team leader will guide you through the questions that designers need to consider at the start of the design process and how to engage stakeholders to collect this information.
