Numerous topical and locally focused examples of projects across the broad range of engineering disciplines help to demonstrate vividly the role and responsibilities of a professional engineer. Themes of sustainability, ethical practice and effective communication are a constant throughout the text.

This edition extensively covers the concepts of sustainability, design, engineering economics and professional responsibility. In addition, its many exercises and project activities will encourage students to put key engineering principles and skills into practice.
