A Student's Introduction to Engineering Design is a book purposed to present the fundamentals in engineering design in a form easily understood by first time students so that they can be familiarized early in their curriculum. The text is divided into two books. Book I describes the discipline of the engineering design, and includes design; modeling; decision theory; communication; and detailed design. Book II, on the other hand, is background material and is more suited to be read early on in the course, as it explores the human element of engineering and the engineer's role towards society. The book is recommended for beginning engineering students, especially for those who wish to acquire a broad perspective and an open mind in their approach to their profession of engineering, learn about design, and make them actively participate in design problems requiring formulation, analysis, evaluation, and decision making.
