The documentary, “Big Bigger Biggest – Skyscrapers is a demonstration that the race to become the world’s most magnificent structure is on, and structures that are already considered the biggest in their categories such as the Burj Dubai and USS Nimitz are a representation of the best there is in the engineering and architectural designs today. These modern constructions are mind-boggling and according to the documentary, they would not be possible without the breakthroughs made in the field of engineering, which have prepared the ground for such constructions.
The series explores the historical context that has made it possible for the structure to achieve their status as the world’s best engineering work. Furthermore, engineering program has also been structured in a manner in which the learners can conduct different engineering experiments, analyze the data at had consequently ensure that they have been interpreted to serve their purposes. The aspects of understanding the needs of the society and engaging in the development of rationales that can assist in the creation of solutions is also an important component that is also considered in as far as civil, and environmental engineering is concerned. The fact that information technology has also proved to be a crucial aspect of engineering field also means that the essence of ensuring that the students are in a position to develop systems that can be used to address societal needs is also a matter of great significant in the field. According to the video presentation, students who choose to venture into engineering are trained to operate on realistic dimensions thereby meeting constraints such as environmental sustainability. In the development of megastructures some of the common engineering applications include sensors, spacecraft, machine tools, as indicated in the video. Thus, they would not be possible without the breakthroughs made in the field of engineering, which have prepared the ground for such constructions.
