101 Things I Learned in Engineering School

Description

Providing unique, accessible lessons on engineering, this title in the bestselling 101 Things I Learned(R) series is a perfect resource for students, recent graduates, general readers, and even seasoned professionals.

An experienced civil engineer presents the physics and fundamentals underlying the many fields of engineering. Far from a dry, nuts-and-bolts exposition, 101 Things I Learned(R) in Engineering School uses real-world examples to show how the engineer's way of thinking can illuminate questions from the simple to the profound: 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? This informative resource will appeal to students, general readers, and even experienced engineers, who will discover within many provocative insights into familiar principles.
