# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Engineering Explorations I Task 2124204165

CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Define an engineering design process.

Definition

Definition of an engineering design process should include multiple steps covering
  • identifying and defining problems
  • identifying constraints and criteria for success
  • brainstorming potential solutions
  • sketching potential solutions
  • evaluating potential solutions considering constraints
  • identifying an optimal solution
  • creating model and prototype
  • testing the solution
  • evaluating results
  • iterating or modifying as needed
  • communicating final results.

Process/Skill Questions

  • How does the engineering design process differ from the scientific method?
  • What is the most crucial step in the engineering design process? Why?
  • Why don’t the engineering design steps need to be completed in one, and only one, order?
