Main description

Engineering Fundamentals & Problem Solving is written to motivate engineering students during their first year.

A complete introduction to the engineering field, this text will help students develop the skills to solving open-ended problems in SI and customary units while presenting solutions in a logical manner. Eide introduces students to subject areas that are common to engineering disciplines that require the application of fundamental engineering concepts.

Engineering Fundamentals & Problem Solving remains the most comprehensive text for an introductory engineering course. The book provides students a realistic opportunity to learn to apply engineering principles to the solution of engineering problems, and the author's approach keeps students on task toward an engineering career by showing how the materials applies to the student's school, life, and career.

While not every course will cover all the topics in this text, McGraw-Hill is proud to offer Create, which will allow you to select the material you need from this text and many others in our B.E.S.T. series for freshman engineering so you can creat materials exactly suited to your course.
