Exploring engineering : an introduction to engineering and design, 2nd ed.

Authors Philip Kosky … [et al.]
Place of Publication Massachusetts
Date of Publication c2010
Publisher Elsevier/Academic Press

Winner in its first edition of the Best New Undergraduate Textbook by the Professional and Scholarly Publishing Division of the American Association of Publishers (AAP), Kosky, et al is the first text offering an introduction to the major engineering fields, and the engineering design process, with an interdisciplinary case study approach. It introduces the fundamental physical, chemical and material bases for all engineering work and presents the engineering design process using examples and hands-on projects. Organized in two parts to cover both the concepts and practice of engineering: Part I, Minds On, introduces the fundamental physical, chemical and material bases for all engineering work while Part II, Hands On, provides opportunity to do design projects. An Engineering Ethics Decision Matrix is introduced in Chapter 1 and used throughout the book to pose ethical challenges and explore ethical decision-making in an engineering context. Lists of ‘Top Engineering Achievements’ and ‘Top Engineering Challenges’ help put the material in context and show engineering as a vibrant discipline involved in solving societal problems. New to this edition: additional discussions on what engineers do, and the distinctions between engineers, technicians, and managers (Chapter 1); new coverage of Renewable Energy and Environmental Engineering helps emphasize the emerging interest in Sustainable Engineering; and, new discussions of Six Sigma in the Design section, and expanded material on writing technical reports. It includes re-organized and updated chapters in Part I to more closely align with specific engineering disciplines new end of chapter exercises throughout the book.

Fundamentals of logic design, 8th ed.
(with accompanying CD-ROM)

Authors Charles H. Roth, Larry L. Kinney
Place of Publication Mason, OH
Date of Publication c2010
Publisher Cengage Learning

Updated with modern coverage, a streamlined presentation, and an excellent companion CD, this sixth edition achieves yet again an unmatched balance between theory and application. Authors Charles H. Roth, Jr. and Larry L. Kinney carefully present the theory that is necessary for understanding the fundamental concepts of logic design while not overwhelming students with the mathematics of switching theory. Divided into 20 easy-to-grasp study units, the book covers such fundamental concepts as Boolean algebra, logic gates design, flip-flops, and state machines. By combining flip-flops with networks of logic gates, students will learn to design counters, adders, sequence detectors, and simple digital systems. After covering the basics, this text presents modern design techniques using programmable logic devices and the VHDL hardware description language
