Inventive Engineering is an emerging engineering science focused on the conceptual designing processes whereby creative, or inventive, designs are developed. Its core concepts are too often unknown and even surprising, but they are also feasible and can be learned, leading to potentially patentable designs. Inventive engineers have a tremendous competitive advantage over other engineers, because they have gone beyond practical and analytical intelligence and have learned how to be creative.

Inventive Engineering: Knowledge and Skills for Creative Engineers has its roots in engineering, psychology, history, systems engineering, political science, and computer science. It presents a body of knowledge integrated from these fields. It provides:

  • Background knowledge, which will motivate and prepare readers for learning inventive engineering
  • A general outline of Inventive Engineering, with an understanding of the conceptual designing process and its various stages
  • Guidance on several inventive designing methods set in their cultural context to encourage students to develop practical skills for their use

About the Author:

Tomasz Arciszewski is a professor emeritus at George Mason University. He is a global scholar with experience that spans five continents and 24 countries. His life mission is to inspire and educate engineers in becoming more creative, thus enabling them to serve humanity in an expanded capacity, not only as analysts but also as inventors. Dr. Arciszewski has published more than 175 research and technical articles, including 57 journal papers and 29 book chapters, and coauthored or authored books. He earned his degrees from the Warsaw University of Technology. Before joining George Mason University in 1993, he was a member of the faculty at Wayne State University for 10 years.

Review:

"The approaches, even though wide ranging and disparate, come together like tools in a toolbox to make the book a unified work with one message."

Civil Engineering magazine

"This extremely well written book encourages engineering students to undergo a paradigm shift-away from simply specializing in analytical problem solving to leveraging a balanced body of knowledge rooted in various domains in order as an inventive engineer to contribute to society in long lasting meaningful ways."
―Cornelia Huellstrunk, Princeton University, New Jersey, USA

"Professor Tomasz Arciszewski has been actively defining and quantifying skills and qualifications that will enable engineers to be successful in the 21st century. His latest book brings together thoughts and experiences of a very successful teacher, researcher and creative thinker. The book is rooted in innovative engineering and science, and teaches related aspects of systems engineering, cognitive psychology, political science and history."
―Fawwaz Habbal, Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

"If you can imagine it, you can invent it. Arciszewski tells you how."
―J.P. Mohsen, University of Louisville, Kentucky, USA
