Many freshman engineering students have questions about the profession. What branch of engineering appeals to me the most? What is the relationship of engineering to the environment? Which skills are required to be a successful engineer? Introduction to the Engineering Profession, 2/E is a major draw for students because it helps them answer these questions. With his engaging style, John Kemper reveals the human aspect of this challenging and rewarding profession, while providing students with essential design and technicalmaterial. This unique approach presents engineering in a social context, as a discipline with a conscience. Kemper reinforces the student orientation by instilling confidence in students, with suggestions about study habits, test-taking, and successful problem-solving.
John Dustin Kemper is at University of California, Davis.
