For an introductory course in Engineering Technologies.
Graduates of two-and four-year technical programs will become society's implementors, those who transform concepts into reality. They must combine a practical understanding of materials, machinery, and processes with the theories of today's practicing engineer. Graduates will work on the cutting edge of technology, installing, operating, and maintaining new equipment in manufacturing and service industries. The implementors will be needed by society, challenged by their careers, and rewarded by their successes. Introduction to Engineering Technology, Seventh Edition is for them.
The text presents an overall view of the engineering world and explains how the technician and technologist fits into that world, stressing the importance of a good attitude and close attention to detail. Introduction to Engineering Technology, Seventh Edition also provides students with an opportunity to use the language and tools of the math-sciences, such as using an engineering calculator, understanding basic applied math (such as algebra and trigonometry, with emphasis on applied), and the value of good communication skills.
