Book Description

Specifically designed as an introduction to the exciting world of engineering, ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTALS: AN INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING encourages students to become engineers and prepares them with a solid foundation in the fundamental principles and physical laws. The book begins with a discovery of what engineers do as well as an inside look into the various areas of specialization. An explanation on good study habits and what it takes to succeed is included as well as an introduction to design and problem solving, communication, and ethics. Once this foundation is established, the book moves on to the basic physical concepts and laws that students will encounter regularly. The framework of this text teaches students that 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. By gaining problem solving skills and an understanding of fundamental principles, students are on their way to becoming analytical, detail-oriented, and creative engineers.

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.
