Overview


With an innovative approach that uses projects and student exploration as key learning tools, Engineering Design: An Introduction offers an overview of the basic engineering principles and concepts that shape today's modern world. These concepts are presented in a flexible, two-part format. Part I describes the process of engineering and technology product design, while Part II develops specific skill sets needed to understand and participate in the process. Opportunities to experiment and learn abound, with projects ranging from technical drawing to designing electrical systems and more. With this emphasis on project-based learning, the book is an ideal supplement to Project Lead the Way's innovative series of project-based curricula designed to increase student interest in engineering careers. Engineering Design's broad scope and sound coverage of the essential concepts and techniques used in engineering design making it the perfect addition to any curriculum.
