Abstract:

This book 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.
