Provide a 11 pages analysis while answering the following question: Building Technology 3 Portfolio. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. During the course, I have been inspired by several works of various engineers, and have been able to learn solutions to the problems of engineering that can at times be iconic and imaginative. Engineering has enabled me to see and understand the way theories or principles can be applied to design. This was perhaps highlighted in one class I attended about safety in the workplace. It was interesting to learn about some of the limitations to design that is applied in the balance of construction and safety. Attending a Headstart at the university has enabled me to learn the way principles learned in the lecture halls can be used in a practical application within the laboratories with a lot of ease.
One major highlight is the civil engineering work whereby we were able to design and put up an inflatable building with a team. It is a very important engineering part that I was really interested in studying because there were several various solutions that were put forward to deal with the matter. It has been an important experience through the course since I managed to see the various styles of teaching at the campus by attending lessons and carrying out lab tasks. This was particularly interesting because of its hands-on nature. I have also read several engineering books and learned for one to be good and qualified in engineering, I should be alive to the fact that each and every design can be modified and it is this knowledge of possibilities in improvement and development of designs through engineering that has attracted my interest.
The reason for choosing this technology is because it is one of the most sophisticated since joining or combining the external wall with the intermediate floor requires professional or advanced skills. It requires that the constructor follows all the set of laid down building principles so that everything can go on smoothly. such as the provision of sound working environments and ensuring that the building is finished in high standards or quality.
