Overview

This new edition of Introduction to Engineering Technology explains the responsibilities of technicians and technologists in the dynamic world of engineering. The basic tools of engineering technology, including problem solving, calculator skills, conversion of units, geometry, computer skills, and technical reporting, are explained.

Important mathematical concepts are presented in a moderately-paced manner so they may be easily learned. In fact, this is the only introductory engineering text that presents practical, worked-out examples for the engineering calculator. The presentation is also designed to motivate the reader to acquire more sophisticated skills in algebra, trigonometry, and geometry. Most importantly, this popular text helps readers to understand the broad spectrum of today's technologies, preparing them for future technical courses.
