Présentation de l'éditeur

In this unique primer, an experienced civil engineer and instructor presents the physics and fundamentals that underlie the many fields of engineering. Far from a dry, nuts-and-bolts exposition, however, 101 THINGS I LEARNED® IN ENGINEERING SCHOOL probes real-world examples to show how the engineer's way of thinking can-and sometimes cannot-inform our understanding of how things work. Questions from the simple to the profound are illuminated throughout: Why shouldn't soldiers march across a bridge? Why do buildings want to float and cars want to fly? What is the difference between thinking systemically and thinking systematically? How can engineering solutions sympathize with the natural environment?

Presented in the familiar, illustrated format of the popular 101 THINGS I LEARNED® series, 101 THINGS I LEARNED® IN ENGINEERING SCHOOL offers an informative resource for students, general readers, and even experienced engineers, who will discover within many provocative new insights into familiar principles.

I have been expecting this book since it was announced on early 2013. As a prospective graduate of 2013 I hoped this would give me some insight or a refresher of what I had learned during my four years in Engineering School. I'm glad to say this book, while not a earth moving revelation it helps to keep conversations interesting and brings smiles and funny anecdotes to the faculty and teaching body.

I really like the small format of the book, perfect for a small coffee table or bookshelf, definitely a book to keep at hand!

I love this book! It concisely summarizes the most pivotal things you'll learn as an undergrad science/engineering major. I plan to reference it in the science classes I teach. It's the perfect gift for any science/engineering grad.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 purchased both the 101 things... for engineering ... 5 avril 2015

purchased both the 101 things...for engineering and architecture - thought about returning because lots of white space. But the book is well made and its priced more like half a book - which is about the amount of content you get. Well laid out info though, and nicely bound. Going to donate them to the local school soon.

I've been collecting these "101 Things I Learned In"... series of books and they're fantastic. As the Kindle editions are being released the price is jumping up to over $32.00 each! This week I am absorbing the Engineering and Architecture editions. I am a technical illustrator by trade and these books definately give me a leg up when holding my own among colleagues and clients...and they're just plain fun to read. Technical information presented in laymen's terms. Publisher, please keep them coming. I finished the Film School book in this series and I will forever view movies from perspectives I had never considered.
