The fourth edition of Engineering Design represents the reorganization and expansion of the topics and the introduction of a coauthor, Dr. Linda Schmidt of the Mechanical Engineering Department, University of Maryland. As in previous editions, Engineering Design is intended to provide a realistic understanding of the engineering design process. It is broader in content than most design texts, but it now contains more prescriptive guidance on how to carry out design. The text is intended to be used in either a junior or senior engineering course with an integrated hands-on design project. The design process material is presented in a sequential format in Chapters 1 through 9. At the University of Maryland we use Chapters 1 through 9 with junior students in a course introducing the design process. Chapters 10 through 17 present more intense treatment of sophisticated design content, including materials selection, design for manufacturing, and quality. The complete text is used in the senior capstone design course that includes a complete design project from selecting a market to creating a working prototype. Students move quickly through the first nine chapters and emphasize chapters 10 through 17 for making embodiment design decisions. The authors recognize deterrents to learning the design process. Design is a complex process to teach in a short amount of time. Students are aware of a myriad of design texts and tools and become overwhelmed with the breadth of design approaches.
