Exploring Engineering is flexible enough to offer a variety of approaches to the introduction of modern engineering for new students, while still providing the most important essentials that hold all engineering disciplines together, particularly the mathematical, quantitative basis of engineering as well as the modern computer tools that make today's engineering design so efficient and accurate.Introduces the fundamental physical, chemical, and material foundations for all engineering work, including motion, force, conservation of energy and matterExplains the workings of simple electrical circuits, computer logic, control and mechatronics, stress/strain diagrams, bioengineering, stoichiometry Offers applications of engineering ethics—using an extended case study metaphor: the modern automobile Provides simple data spreadsheets and other analytical "tools of the trade" to introduce students to the concepts of theoretical and of empirical engineering Presents the engineering design process using examples and assignments specifically aimed at helping to guide students and instructor through a hands-on design project
For Engineering Economics courses, found in departments of Industrial, Civil, Mechanical, and Electrical Engineering. This text is also useful for any individual interested in the field of Industrial, Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.
From the author of the best-selling Contemporary Engineering Economics text, Fundamentals of Engineering Economics offers a concise, but in-depth coverage of all fundamental topics of Engineering Economics.
Comprehensively blends engineering concepts with economic theory
Contemporary Engineering Economics teaches engineers how to make smart financial decisions in an effort to create economical products. As design and manufacturing become an integral part of engineers’ work, they are required to make more and more decisions regarding money.
The Sixth Edition helps students think like the 21st century engineer who is able to incorporate elements of science, engineering, design, and economics into his or her products. This text comprehensively integrates economic theory with principles of engineering, helping students build sound skills in financial project analysis.
