Transportation engineering or transport engineering is the application of technology and scientific principles to the planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for any mode of transportation in order to provide for the safe, efficient, rapid, comfortable, convenient, economical, and environmentally compatible movement of people and goods (transport).
Usability engineering is a field that is concerned generally with human-computer interaction and specifically with devising human-computer interfaces that have high usability or user friendliness.
Vacuum engineering deals with technological processes and equipment that use vacuum to achieve better results than those run under atmospheric pressure.
Value engineering (VE) is a systematic method to improve the "value" of goods or products and services by using an examination of function.
Value-driven design (VDD) is a systems engineering strategy based on microeconomics which enables multidisciplinary design optimization.
Verification and validation are independent procedures that are used together for checking that a product, service, or system meets requirements and specifications and that it fulfills its intended purpose.
The World Wide Web has become a major delivery platform for a variety of complex and sophisticated enterprise applications in several domains.
Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion, which is distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal.
The yield point is the point on a stress–strain curve that indicates the limit of elastic behavior and the beginning of plastic behavior.
