This book gives freshman engineering students a solid foundation for all their future coursework. It provides an overview to the engineering profession and of the skills they will need to develop, as well as an introduction to fundamental engineering topics such as thermodynamics, rate processes, and Newtons laws. An important aspect of the books approach is the method of Engineering Accounting, which casts the basic conservation laws (e.g., of energy or mass) as simple accounting procedures. This is a unifying concept that facilitates problem-solving across all engineering disciplines.
