Written for students and engineers, this book shows readers how to apply science and technology to solve problems facing society. The text describes how engineers represent and solve engineering problems and then details some of the mathematical models used. The text is broken into three parts: The Engineering Mindset, Model-Based Design, and Problem Solving with MATLAB. Topics covered include organization and representation of engineering systems, data analysis and empirical models, and learning and problem solving.
MATLAB is used throughout the book to solve many real-world application examples.
