Engineering is the application of science and mathematics to achieve useful objectives for the benefit of society. Typically, the goal of an engineering education is to effectively pass on to students knowledge in the application of science and mathematics to solve engineering problems. A number of resources are available for design engineers, but until now, there has never been a single comprehensive resource specific to ceramic applications.
