Summary

Introduction to Engineering Technology, Sixth Edition, explains the responsibilities of technicians and technologists in the dynamic world of engineering. The basic tools of engineering technology are identified and explained, including problem solving, calculator skills, conversion of units, geometry, computer skills, and technical reporting. The text has been used to develop curricula for introductory engineering technology courses in the United States and abroad. Important mathematical concepts are presented in a moderately-paced manner so that they can be easily learned. The presentation is also designed to motivate the reader to acquire more sophisticated skills in algebra, trigonometry, and geometry. Most importantly, this popular text helps readers to understand the broad spectrum of today's technologies, preparing them for their technical courses to follow. Updates to the Sixth Edition have been carefully crafted to reflect changes in the technology and the industries they serve.

A brief introduction to statistics has been added in order to meet the recommendations of current users of the text. The latest in the series of the popular TI-80s-the TI-89has been explained, although the fourth chapter is general enough that any engineering calculator may be mastered with appropriate instruction. The computer information in the text has been updated and simplified as much as is practical in order to assist the aspiring technologist to focus on the most important operations to be performed.
