At last engineering is getting its due; engineers are finally cool. But few of us understand the engineering mindset. It’s the mindset that came up with flatpack furniture, disposable nappies, and the postal code; that solved Stockholm’s traffic and the problem of bank closing times (the hole-in-the-wall); and whose seemingly simple ideas have saved countless lives, with innovations such as painting a line behind traffic lanes and combining GPS with 999. It’s a mindset much like a Swiss-army knife – multipurpose, combining structured and abstract thinking, common sense and great imagination, and cross-pollinating information from every possible sector. With the help of a cast of star engineers and fascinating, unexpected real world examples, Madhavan offers a framework for thinking creatively, systematically and strategically so that we can all learn to make better decisions in a complex world.

At our university, all students who wish to major in engineering begin in the General Engineering Program, and after completing a core set of classes, they can declare a specific engineering major. Within this core set of classes, students are required to take math, physics, chemistry, and a two-semester engineering sequence. Our courses have evolved to address not only the changing qualities of our students, but also the changing needs of our customers. The material taught in our courses is the foundation upon which the upper level courses depend for the skills necessary to master more advanced material. It was for these freshman courses that this text was created. We didn’t set out to write a textbook: we simply set out to find a better way to teach our students. Our philosophy was to help students move from a mode of learning, where everything was neatly presented as lecture and handouts where the instructor was looking for the “right” answer, to a mode of learning driven by self-guided inquiry. We wanted students to advance beyond “plug-and-chug” and memorization of problem- solving methods—to ask themselves if their approaches and answers make sense in the physical world. We couldn’t settle on any textbooks we liked without patching materials together—one chapter from this text, four chapters from another—so we wrote our own notes. Through them, we tried to convey that engineering isn’t always about having the answer—sometimes it’s about asking the right questions, and we want students to learn how to ask those sorts of questions. Real-world problems rarely come with all of the information required for their solutions. Problems presented to engineers typically can’t be solved by looking at how someone else solved the exact same problem. Part of the fun of engineering is that every problem presents a unique challenge and requires a unique solution. Engineering is also about arriving at an answer and being able to justify the “why” behind your choice, and equally important, the “why not” of the other choices. We realized quickly, however, that some students are not able to learn without sufficient scaffolding. Structure and flexibility must be managed carefully. Too much structure results in rigidity and unnecessary uniformity of solutions. On the other hand, too much flexibility provides insufficient guidance, and students flounder down many blind alleys, thus making it more difficult to acquire new knowledge. The tension between these two must be managed constantly. We are a large public institution, and our student body is very diverse. Our hope is to provide each student with the amount of scaffolding they need to be successful. Some students will require more background work than others. Some students will need to work five problems, and others may need to work 50. We talk a great deal to our students about how each learner is unique. Some students need to listen to a lecture; some need to read the text over three times, and others just need to try a skill and make mistakes to discover what they still don’t understand. We have tried to provide enough variety for each type of learner throughout Over the years, we have made difficult decisions on exactly what topics, and how much of each topic, to teach. We have refined our current text to focus on mastering four areas, each of which is introduced below.

Comprised of a study spanning over five years, this text looks at four engineering co-op students as they write at work. Since the contributors have a foot in both worlds -- work and school -- the book should appeal to people who are interested in how students learn to write as well as people who are interested in what writing at work is like. Primarily concerned with whether engineers see their writing as rhetorical or persuasive, the study attempts to describe the students' changing understanding of what it is they do when they write. Two features of engineering practice that have particular impact on the extent to which engineers recognize persuasion are identified: * a reverence for data, and * the hierarchical structure of the organizations in which engineering is most commonly done. Both of these features discourage an open recognition of persuasion. Finally, the study shows that the four co-op students learned most of what they knew about writing at work by engaging in situated practice in the workplace, rather than by attending formal classes.

Learn as you do in this hands-on engineering book for kids with Carol Vorderman. Being an engineer isn't just about wearing a hard hat and looking important while holding a clipboard! It's about looking at the world and trying to figure out how it works. As well as simple engineering projects for kids to try, DK's How to be an Engineer will teach them how to think like an engineer, including materials, building, machines, getting around, and energy. You can find out how engineers use STEAM subjects and their imaginations to fix problems, and take inspiration from engineering heroes such as Leonardo da Vinci, Mae Jemison, and Elon Musk. This book encourages you to investigate, with amazing projects using things from around your home: find out about materials by crushing loo rolls, learn about jet propulsion with balloons, and build a robot arm from rulers. Fun questions, engineering experiments, and real-life scenarios come together to make engineering relevant. In How to be a Engineer the emphasis is on inspiring kids, which means less time at a computer and more time in the real world! Do you like solving problems? Are you good at making things? Have you ever dreamed of being an inventor? If so you may be an engineer in the making.
