about

Oakes/Leone is an introduction to engineering text. Although introduction to engineering is not offered at all schools, we are seeing the course grow (22% up in last two years TWM Research) as students enter engineering schools and drop out in their second year because they are overwhelmed bythe math and physics and have not received any engineering instruction at all. As such, this course and text strive to introduce students to the topics in engineering including descriptions of the various sub-fields, math fundamentals, ethics, technical communications, engineering design and studentsuccess skills.

Oakes Brief is for the former segment and Oakes Comprehensive is for the latter segment. The book is successfulbecause it covers the basic course needs well.
