Description: Exploring Engineering, Fourth Edition: An Introduction to Engineering and Design presents engineers with problems and new work on the emerging challenges in a wide range of areas important to improving quality of life. Chapters discuss important areas, including sustainable energy, access to clean water, and improved communications and health care technologies. Kosky et al. explore the world of engineering by introducing the reader to what engineers do, the fundamental principles that form the basis of their work, and how they apply that knowledge within a structured design process. The three-part organization of the text reinforces these areas, making this an ideal introduction for anyone interested in exploring the various fields of engineering and learning how engineers work to solve problems. Introduces students to the engineering profession, emphasizing the fundamental physical, chemical, and material bases for all engineering workIncludes an Engineering Ethics Decision Matrix used throughout the book to pose ethical challenges and explore decision-making in an engineering contextLists 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 problemsNew chapters on aeronautical engineering, industrial engineering, sustainable/green engineering, and teambuilding
