  • scientific and engineering principles in the development of a solution
  • engineering knowledge to analyze, solve and predict performance of a solution
  • engineering knowledge to produce the required documents to fabricate a product/system to solve the problem
  • critical thinking skills and knowledge gained throughout the engineering curricula
  • self-learning skills and gain knowledge, not found in the curriculum, but needed to solve the problem  
  • financial and other economic analysis to determine the cost of the developed solution, and
  • interpret the impact of the solution on the environment and the welfare of society as a whole
