Engineering: Its Role and Function in Human Society illustrates the historical views held by humanists and technologists with regard to each other, the accomplishments of engineering in the past, and the problems involving laymen and men of science together in their relationships. Some of the topics covered are the aloofness from science and technology; hostility to technology; and acceptance of technology. The book also covers topics on the attitudes of the engineer; the use of engineering in relation to human needs; and engineering as a technological culture. The ultimate use of tools and machines; automation and human condition; pollution and pollutants; and causes of problems in engineering are also encompassed. Engineers and engineering students will find the book invaluable.
