Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides a brief history and a comprehensive overview of the engineering profession and practice, describing the functions and career paths for various branches of engineering. Paul Wright offers suggestions on communications and creativity, as well as guidelines for the engineering code of ethics.

Book News Annotation:

Intended for beginning students in all branches of engineering, the new edition of this text attempts to discuss the broadest issues and concerns to the practice of engineering. After a brief history of engineering, chapters discuss engineering career paths and professional responsibilities, the role of creativity in engineering and design methods, procedures for the handling of data and the application of common mathematical procedures to the solution of engineering problems. Finally two case studies look at ways that engineering interacts with the environment and society (in the case of Atlanta's Freedom Parkway Project) and circumstances that lead to engineering failures (in the case of the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger.
