A new book for a new generation of engineering professionals, Visualization, Modeling, and Graphics for Engineering Design was written from the ground up to take a brand-new approach to graphic communication within the context of engineering design and creativity. With a blend of modern and traditional topics, this text recognizes how computer modeling techniques have changed the engineering design process. From this new perspective, the text is able to focus on the evolved design process, including the critical phases of creative thinking, product ideation, and advanced analysis techniques. Focusing on design and design communication rather than drafting techniques and standards, it goes beyond the "what" to explain the "why" of engineering graphics.
Sheryl Sorby is currently a professor of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics at Michigan Technological University, where she was formerly the Associate Dean for Academic Programs and the Department Chair of Engineering Fundamentals. She was the recipient of the Betty Vetter research award through the Women in Engineering Program Advocates Network (WEPAN) for her work in improving the success of women engineering students through the development of a spatial skills course. She has also received the Engineering Design Graphics Distinguished Service Award, the Distinguished Teaching Award, and the Dow Outstanding New Faculty Award, all from ASEE, where she serves as Associate Editor of Advances in Engineering Education.
