    P&G Engineering Experience Program Learning Objectives

    Modeling & Simulation

  • Describe the Engineering Education our team members have.
  • Describe how modeling & simulation aids the P&G technical work processes.
  • Provide a hands on example of how modeling & simulation helps P&G learn consumers’ preferences.
  • Engage in a demonstration of modeling consumers using a P&G package & product.
  • Demonstrate how models & simulations are created and used to design P&G process & equipment (CAD, mesh, solve, post-process, reports).
  • Provide a hands on demonstration of bottle conveying in a P&G manufacturing process.
  • Give students an opportunity to ask questions and learn in a panel format.

Mechanical Engineering

  • Learn about how Mechanical Engineers in P&G’s Mechanical Technologies Department develop high performance machines for production of consumer products.
  • See some “How It’s Made” examples of mechanical equipment and processes that have been developed to manufacture products that Procter and Gamble manufactures and sells.
  • Tour of the Mechanical Technologies Laboratory and see demonstrations of mechanical equipment currently being constructed and tested.  Provide students with a hands on opportunity to troubleshoot and develop solutions to a real engineering development problem.
  • Provide students hands on experience with a high speed video camera to troubleshoot a machine running at high speed.
  • Give the students an opportunity to ask questions to a group of Mechanical Engineers and gain insight on a career in Mechanical Engineering.

  Process Engineering

  • See examples of ingredients in P&G products and why they perform the way they do at the microscopic scale.
  • Learn how P&G makes liquid, and powder, products at a small scale and a large scale.
  • Learn about complex fluids and how they flow.
  • Learn about granular materials and how P&G makes them.
  • Give students an opportunity to ask questions to a group of Process Technology technologists.

Cost Engineering (Capital Systems)
