For freshman- to senior-level design courses in Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, and Chemical Engineering.
Hyman's comprehensive, clearly written and organized, and thorough treatment of engineering design fundamentals incorporates much of the material covered in contemporary "mini" design books, which are almost exclusively devoted to design methodology. Engineering Design however also includes topics such as engineering economics, project planning, professional and social context of design, and optimization.

Engineering design concepts are as fundamental to undergraduate engineering education as the traditional sciences. This comprehensive text provides well-organized, flexible coverage of engineering design fundamentals including problem formulation, concept generation, project planning, engineering economics, decision making, and optimization. These topics are developed from an interdisciplinary perspective that is independent of level of technical sophistication. Thus the book can be used in design courses within any engineering discipline and at any level from first year to capstone design.New Features:
This second edition significantly expands upon the extensive graphics, worked-out examples, and large set of exercises and design projects contained in the first edition, while retaining the informal reading style praised by students and faculty.
