January 18, 2022 -- Colorado Springs, CO USA -- Author Steven Johnson says, “The trick to having good ideas is not to sit around in glorious isolation and try to think big thoughts. The trick is to get more parts on the table.”
Fluor Construction, an international engineering, procurement, and construction, (EPC) firm, is doing just that by partnering again with Applied Flow Technology (AFT) with their design challenge contests among university engineering students in Texas. With each contest, students gain experience and exposure to real-world engineering tools and practices Fluor and other EPC firms leverage during the design process. More importantly, they hope to introduce the criticality of communication, teamwork, and considerations that are necessary for actual system construction.
