Synopsis: Thoroughly updated to reflect modern engineering practice, the fifth edition of Engineers and Their Profession offers in-depth coverage of the engineering enterprise and engineers' involvement in key areas of American endeavor. Comprehensive and accessible, it is an ideal text for an upper-level undergraduate course in engineering professionalism. It is also suitable for introductory freshman engineering courses and for high school and college students considering a career in this diverse field. The book provides a broad overview of the profession and helps students make the transition from college to industry by describing the reality of the business world that they will soon enter. This revised edition includes up-to-date and extensive coverage of ethics and personal responsibility, making it especially useful for engineering professionals. The text is enhanced by study questions at the end of each chapter and numerous figures and tables throughout.

Engineers and Their Profession, 5/e, covers essential design and technical topics while also emphasizing the human aspect of this challenging and rewarding field. The text is flexibly organized into three sections:
· Part I answers the important question, "What do engineers really do?" Topics covered include the branches of engineering; engineering challenges; engineering employment; engineering education; creativity; design and development; and salaries and other rewards.
· Part II discusses how engineers meet their professional obligations to protect the public's health, safety, and welfare. It includes chapters on professional registration; management; ethics and public responsibility; engineering societies; intellectual property; and product liability.
· Part III contains appendices on definitions, codes of ethics, and guidelines for professional employment.

An exceptional resource for students, professionals, and interested general readers, Engineers and Their Profession, 5/e, demonstrates the vitality, diversity, and significance of the field. It shows how engineers will play a pivotal role in several of the great challenges--such as rebuilding the infrastructure and maintaining the quality of the environment--facing our country and the world today.
