Innovation, creativity, design thinking, collaboration, communication, problem solving, and technical skills are key skills for practicing engineers. This textbook introduces the principles of design, discusses design tools and techniques from traditional and multidisciplinary perspectives, and comprehensively explores the design engineering process. It presents a broad multidisciplinary perspective to design that encourages students to be innovative and open to new ideas and concepts while also drawing on traditional design methods and strategies.
Deconstructs some of the most commonly-encountered and challenging problems arising within engineering domains such as thermodynamics, separation processes, chemical kinetics, fluid dynamics, and engineering mathematics. It provides students ample practice in solving problems, and the presentation of detailed step-by-step explanations for each problem from start to finish in this book helps students follow the train of thought toward arriving at the final numerical solutions to the problems.
