Note: This is a standalone book and does not include Access Card/Code.

Now in dynamic full color, ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTALS: AN INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING, 5e helps readers develop the strong problem-solving skills and solid foundation in fundamental principles they will need to become analytical, detail-oriented, and creative engineers. The book opens with an overview of what engineers do, an inside glimpse of the various areas of specialization, and a straightforward look at what it takes to succeed. The book then covers the basic physical concepts and laws that you'll encounter on the job. Professional Profiles throughout the text highlight the work of practicing engineers from around the globe, tying in the fundamental principles and applying them to professional engineering. Using a flexible modular format, the book demonstrates how engineers apply physical and chemical laws and principles, as well as mathematics, to design, test, and supervise the production of millions of parts, products, and services that people use every day.

Editorial Reviews

"Best design fundamentals text I have seen."

"The IMPROMPTU design exercises are excellent for budding engineering students."

"...this text does a good job of finding a reasonable compromise between clarity and thoroughness. The writing style is engaging. I like the inclusion of cartoons, and the overall layout is quite attractive. Yes, there is a clear sense of concern for the reader. Definitions, examples, and drawings are closely intertwined, making for a satisfying reading experience."

"There are many things about this text that I think are superior to any other text I have seen."

1Not worth reading.
By --
Legitimately terrible book. Its like they didn't even edit it, the amount of mistakes is silly even on basic definitions. The academic department at m university had a school wide meeting of department professors to talk about removing the book from our intro to engineering course.
Lots of superfluous examples and cringe worthy illustrations to boot.

3Buy it if it's required
By Brad r
This book was a requirement for Orientation to ECET and Design class. It's an okay book, the Excel and Matlab parts but the rest are descriptions of deferent engineering focuses. Buy it if you have to.

By Wes
Had to get this as a text book for a class. Tons of information but some of the formulas were hard to decipher. A step by step breakdown of the equations would have made going over the information easierl. I have been taught the formulas before but digging through notes takes a while and them being listed on the pages where they are being gone over would have helped.
