9780131409194: Engineering by Design (2nd Edition)

The book introduces readers to a broad range of important design topics. It provides numerous cases that illustrate both successes and failures in engineering design; qualitative presentation of engineering practices are easily understood by readers with little technical knowledge, and analytical techniques are given that allow the development and evaluation of proposed engineering solutions. Coverage includes: an overview of engineering design, needs assessment, structuring the search for the problem, structuring the search for a solution (design goals and specifications), acquiring and applying technical knowledge, abstraction and modeling, synthesis, ethics and product liability issues, and hazards analysis and failure analysis. An excellent handbook for design engineers.

From the Back Cover:

Engineering by Design provides class-tested resources and a framework for students to:

  • formulate problems correctly
  • work successfully in interdisciplinary teams
  • develop their creativity, imagination, and analytical skills
  • make informed ethical decisions
  • hone their written and oral communication skills

Written for introductory engineering courses, this text is also suitable for a number of other design courses. Instructor materials and a website support those who may be new to teaching a design course.

About the Author:

Gerard Voland has taught design for 20 years and pioneered an innovative, nationally recognized freshman design course at Northeastern University. In 1994 he was named the George A. Snell Professor of Engineering in appreciation for his work with this freshman design course and with engineering curriculum reform at Northeastern. He is also the author of textbooks on engineering graphics and control systems modeling. He lives in in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, with his wife, Margaret Voland, a mathematician who researched and developed the case problems in this book.
