Basic Engineering Technology covers various topics related to engineering, from safety procedures and movement of loads to measurement and dimensional control. Marking out, workholding, and toolholding are also discussed, along with joining, assembly, and dismantling. The interpretation of technical drawings, specifications, and data is considered as well. Comprised of 10 chapters, this book begins with a historical overview of the development of the engineering industry, followed by a discussion on the academic qualifications and training of the various categories of technical personnel employed in the industry. The reader is then introduced to safe practices observed in the engineering industry, with emphasis on health and safety legislation, causes of accidents, and accident prevention. Subsequent chapters focus on safety considerations in the movement of loads; measurement and control of dimensional properties; advantages and disadvantages of marking out; workholding and toolholding applications; and assembly and dismantling. This monograph is intended for undergraduate students and those enrolled in training centers and in industrial apprentice training schemes.
