Since "Studying Engineering: A Road Map to a Rewarding Career" exploded onto the market in 1995, it has become the best selling Introduction to Engineering textbook of all time. Adopted by over 300 U.S. institutions, and reaching more than 150,000 students, the book has made major inroads into the "sink or swim" paradigm of engineering education. Armed with the book as a powerful tool for "student development," large numbers of engineering programs have implemented Introduction to Engineering courses to improve the academic performance and retention rates of their students.<br /><br />Now, this pioneering text has been updated and expanded to bring students even more clarity in the process of achieving success in engineering study. <br /><br />Significant new material has been added to the Fourth Edition including:<br /><br />Ø A Prologue to provide students with a perspective on what this book has to offer and how to get it.<br /><br />Ø New sections on topics including fixed vs. growth mindset, reverse engineering, sustainability, life-long learning, study abroad, entrepreneurship, teamwork and leadership, engineering ethics, and inspirational and motivational quotations<br /><br />Ø Incorporation of the University of Maryland human-powered helicopter project to illustrate the engineering design process in action<br /><br />Ø The adoption of the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges for Engineering to provide an indication of future directions for engineering<br /><br />Ø Substantially more graphics to make the text more accessible and readable<br /><br />"Studying Engineering" is written for students both those who are already engineering majors and those who are considering engineering as their field of study. <br /><br />The purpose of this innovative and exciting book is to enhance student success. Through its eight chapters it teaches students about: <br /><br />1. The keys to success in engineering study <br /><br />2. The rewards and opportunities of an engineering career. <br /><br />3. An understanding of the field of engineering—past, present, and future <br /><br />4. Insight into the learning process <br /><br />5. Academic success strategies needed to excel in mathematics, science, and engineering courses <br /><br />6. The process of personal development needed to ensure that their behaviors and attitudes support their goal of becoming an engineer <br /><br />7. Ways to enhance the quality of their education through participation in student organizations, pre-professional employment, engineering projects, study abroad, and service the institution and/or community <br /><br />8. The engineering education system and how to take full advantage of that system. <br /><br />Students can read the book on their own or use it in conjunction with an Introduction to Engineering course having a “student development/student success” focus. Reflections are interspersed throughout each chapter so that students can read a section and then stop to engage in a guided reflection about what they just read. Completion of many of 203 end-of-the-chapter problems provides opportunity for significant learning experience. A design project to “Design Your Process of Becoming a World-Class First-Year Engineering Student” provides a vehicle for students to become actively involved in their growth and development as an math/science/engineering student.

IT infrastructure has been the foundation that enabled successful application deployments for many decades. Yet, general and up to date infrastructure knowledge is not widespread. Experience shows that software developers, system administrators, and project managers often have little knowledge of the big influence IT infrastructure has on performance, availability and security of software applications.<br />This book explains the concepts, history, and implementation of IT infrastructures. Although many of books can be found on each individual infrastructure building block, this is the first book to describe all of them: datacenters, servers, networks, storage, operating systems, and end user devices.<br />The building blocks described in this book provide functionality, but they also provide the non-functional attributes performance, availability, and security. These attributes are explained on a conceptual level in separate chapters, and more specific in the chapters about each individual building block.<br />Whether you need an introduction to infrastructure technologies, a refresher course, or a study guide for a computer science class, you will find that the presented building blocks and concepts provide a solid foundation for understanding the complexity of today’s IT infrastructures.<br />This book can be used as a study book – it is used by a number of universities in the USA, as part of their IT architecture courses, based on the IS 2010.4 curriculum.
