For engineering students and those about to take on their first job, the design project can be a harrowing and daunting prospect. This timely handbook, the culmination of the editors' years of experience teaching engineering design courses, breaks down the design project into manageable pieces and takes the intimidation out of the process. It sets forth valuable guidelines and answers to the most pressing and often-repeated questions. The editors cover where to start, how to consider the impact of the project on society, project scheduling, management, and budgeting, guidelines for written and oral presentations, and how to protect intellectual property and possibly turn the project into a business.
