For Freshman or Introductory courses in Engineering and Computer Science.ESource--Prentice Hall's Engineering Source--provides a complete, flexible introductory engineering and computing program. Featuring over 15 modules and growing, ESource allows professors to fully customize their textbooks through the ESource website. Professors are not only able to pick and choose modules, but also sections of modules, incorporate their own materials, and re-paginate and re-index the complete project. http://emissary.prenhall.com/esource or http://www.prenhall.com/esource

Key Benefit: This unique book presents the story of four fictional engineers hired as part of a team designing a prototype for a mass- produced auto. It describes the problems they encounter and the tools they use to solve them. It provides an overview of basic design principles, from defining objectives to selecting a design strategy and creating simulations of testing and evaluation while introducing both technical and nontechnical factors to be considered in the business of engineering. Key Topics: This is an excellent overview of what an engineer does day-to-day that demystifies the design process and shows how engineers work as teams as well as the roles of ethics and marketing. Each chapter describes a day or an event in the lives of the engineers while presenting a wide range of important, relevant topics, including brainstorming; the importance of accurate documentation; computer use and mechanical testing; the role of failure in the design process; proper data organization, oral presentation skills, and technical writing. The book also presents current design tools and programming languages, such as AutoCAD, SPICE, C++, and MATLAB. Market: A valuable resource for any reader interested in engineering design.About the Author:
Mark Horenstein is an Associate Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Boston University. He received his Bachelors in Electrical Engineering in 1973 from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his Masters in Electrical Engineering in 1975 from University of California at Berkeley, and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 1978 from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Professor Horenstein's research interests are in applied electrostatics and electromagnetics as well as microelectronics, including sensors, instrumentation, and measurement. His research deals with the simulation, test, and measurement of electromagnetic fields. Some topics include electrostatics in manufacturing processes, electrostatic instrumentation, EOS/ESD control, and electromagnetic wave propagation. Professor Horenstein designed and developed a class at Boston University, which he now teaches entitled Senior Design Project (ENG SC 466). In this course, the student gets real engineering design experience by working for a virtual company, created by Professor Horenstein, that does real projects for outside companies--almost like an apprenticeship. Once in "the company" (Xebec Technologies), the student is assigned to an engineering team of 3-4 persons. A series of potential customers are recruited, from which the team must accept an engineering project. The team must develop a working prototype deliverable engineering system that serves the need of the customer. More than one team may be assigned to the same project, in which case there is competition for the customer's business.
