Many colleges of engineering are seeking to give students moreexposure to design early in the curriculum. One approach has beento develop project-based, design-centered courses for first-yearstudents, but few texts on design are at the right level forfirst-year students. Designing Engineers: AnIntroductory Textbook has been created to meet thisneed. It has evolved from one of the largest and mostsuccessful first-year engineering design programs, taught to over1,000 students annually at the University of Toronto.
Designing Engineers is written in short modules,where each module is built around a specific learning outcome andis cross-referenced to the other modules that should be read aspre-requisites, and could be read in tandem with or following thatmodule. The book begins with a brief orientation to the designprocess, followed by coverage of the design process in a series ofshort modules. The rest of the book contains a set of modulesorganized in several major categories: Communication & CriticalThinking, Teamwork & Project Management, and Design forSpecific Factors (e.g. environmental, human factors, intellectualproperty). A resource section provides brief reference material oneconomics, failure and risk, probability and statistics, principles& problem solving, and estimation.Vom Verlag:
More than just a typical design text, Introduction to Engineering Design roots design concepts in disciplinary context. Written as a set of discrete modules that can be used in virtually any selection and order, the text's modular structure provides engineers with a matrix of conceptual chapters with supporting materials, including tools, case studies, templates, and activities. These items are tagged with metadata that defines their relationships to chapters. Case studies from different regions of the globe embed international versioning.
