## Engineering fundamentals and problem solvingThe fifth edition of "Engineering Fundamentals & Problem Solving" is written to motivate engineering students during their first year. A complete introduction to the engineering field, this text will help students develop the skills to solving open-ended problems in SI and customary units while presenting solutions in a logical manner. Eide introduces students to subject areas that are common to engineering disciplines that require the application of fundamental engineering concepts. For those instructors who desire a shorter text to complement other application specific texts, McGraw-Hill offers cutomization through our Primis-Build a Book, or the BEST version of this text. Please see Eide's "Introduction to Engineering Design and Problem Solving," 2nd edition, from the BEST series. |
