A thoroughly contemporary approach to teaching essential technical graphics skills has made Bertoline and Wiebe's Fundamentals of Graphics Communication the leading textbook in introductory engineering graphics programs. The fifth edition continues to integrate design concepts and the use of CAD into its outstanding coverage of the basic visualization and sketching techniques that enable students to create and communicate graphic ideas effectively.
As in past editions, the authors have included many examples of how graphics communication pertains to "real-world" engineering design, including current industry practices and breakthroughs; as one example, the Motorola RAZR cellular phone is used as a case study to synthesize the design concepts in the text. A dynamic Online Learning Center provides additional resources such as an image bank, animations, quizzes, and links to current industry and career sites.
