  1. 1. INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
  2. 2. DEFINITION OF ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY • The part of the technological field that requires the application of scientific and engineering knowledge. • Combination of technical skills in support of engineering activities.
  3. 3. TECHNOLOGIST HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGIST
  4. 4. Fredrik Idestam • • • • • • • • • • Was the founder of Nokia Corporation. Native of Finland Born 28 October 1838 Died 8 April 1916 He is an engineer has been applying his knowledge and expertise in the field of engineering for the processing of wood and produce paper with cheap prices This is a revolutionary process to the paper making industry at the time won a bronze medal at the World Exposition in Paris in 1867 After a century of mergers and acquisitions process several companies, Nokia began to involve business in the field of mobile communications around the early 1980's Nokia now worth about AS29.5 billion.

  6. 6. TECHNICIAN, TECHNOLOGIST, ENGINEER
  7. 7. ENGINEER • An engineer is a professional practitioner of engineering, concerned with applying scientific knowledge, mathematics, and ingenuity to develop solutions for technical problems. • Engineers design materials, structures, and systems while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety, and cost. • In short, engineers are versatile minds who create links between science, technology, and society
  8. 8. TECHNOLOGIST • A person who works in the application of practical sciences to industry or commerce (the scientists and technologists that we will need for the future). • In the other way, the technologist is combine of methods, theory, and practices governing in their work. • The total of technologist knowledge and skills available to any human society for industry, art, and science.
  9. 9. TECHNICIAN • A technician is a worker in a field of technology who is proficient in the relevant skills and techniques, with a relatively practical understanding of the theoretical principles. • Experienced technicians in a specific tool domain typically have intermediate understanding of theory and expert proficiency in technique.
  10. 10. DIFFERENT IN SCOPE OF WORK BETWEEN ENGINEER, TECHNOLOGIST AND TECHNICIAN.
  11. 11. TECHNICIAN TECHNOLOGIST •Technicians are most •Technologist focuses on often employed in service the applied and practical jobs. application of engineering principles •The work typically involves equipment •Technologists often work installation, with engineers in a wide troubleshooting and variety of projects by repair, testing and applying basic engineering measuring, maintenance principles and technical and adjustment, skills. manufacturing, or operation. •The work of technologists is usually focused on the portion of the technological spectrum closest to product improvement, manufacturing, construction, and engineering operational functions. ENGINEER •Engineering programs are geared toward development of conceptual skills, and consist of a sequence of engineering fundamentals and design courses, built on a foundation of complex mathematics and science courses.
  12. 12. TECHNICIAN TECHNOLOGIST •Technicians in these positions are sometimes called field service technicians, field service engineers, or customer representatives. •They may be hired as managers of technology, depending on the technologist's educational emphasis on management preparation. • Technicians also work as engineering technicians, lab technicians, engineering assistant, or associate engineer. •Entry-level positions such as product design, testing, development, systems development, field engineering, technical operations, and quality control.

  13. 13. POLYMER TECHNOLOGIST vs CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGIST
  14. 14. Polymer Technologist Chemical Technologist Polymer engineering is a strongly interdisciplinary field and papers published may span the chemistry, physics, engineering and applications of polymeric materials. Chemical engineers use chemistry and engineering to turn raw materials into usable products, such as medicine, petrochemicals and plastics, especially on a large-scale, industrial setting. Significant contributions from related fields such as biomaterials, renewable energy, nanotechnology, photonics, and polymers for biomedical and electronic applications are encouraged. Typical uses of composites are monocoque (structural skin or stressed skin) structures for aerospace and automobiles. A chemical engineer may be involved in industry or university research where they are tasked in designing and performing experiments to create new and better ways of production, controlling pollution, conserving resources and making these processes safer.
  15. 15. Job Description Polymer Technologist Polymer Technologists may work in one of three different industries that utilize polymer materials to manufacture component parts or products – Plastics, Rubber or Composites manufacture. Technologists are qualified engineers who work on complex problems for their company or customers. They will be involved in specifying new materials, products, tooling and process technology. Chemical Technologist Chemical technologists and technicians are workers who provide technical support or services in chemical-related fields. They may work under direct supervision or may work independently, depending on their specific position and duties. Their work environments differ widely, and include but are not limited to laboratories and industrial settings.
  16. 16. Responsibilities Polymer Technologist Chemical Technologist Duties and responsibilities vary from To provide technical support as one position to another but, in required by production, sales, general, chemical technologists: marketing and sister companies, travelling to alternative sites as carry out chemical reactions required prepare standards and samples Ensure all documentation for materials is kept current and analyze samples using bench accurate. methods and sophisticated Formulate materials to maximise instrumentation properties and comply with health & safety legislation.
  17. 17. Polymer Technologist Testing materials and product to customer specifications and preparing reports to feedback results and conclusions. Materials selection including contact with raw materials suppliers to evaluate available options. To play an active role in process improvement and the implementation of change Chemical Technologist prepare reports and required documentation maintain and upgrade laboratory instruments and equipment manage projects and make presentations about results.
