Engineering & Technology

Open Courseware and Resources (general)

- Engineering: discipline of acquiring and applying scientific and technical knowledge to the design, analysis, and/or construction of works for practical purposes
- Technology: a broad concept that deals with a species' usage and knowledge of tools and crafts and how it affects a species' ability to control and adapt to its environment


designs turned into products, resources, materials and methods used, introducing manufacturing as a system, some of the many different ways of making products, how the required properties of the materials in a product influence the choice of manufacturing process used
