Engineering Science: for Foundation Degree and Higher National covers the engineering principles and applications that students need to know at this level, focusing primarily upon the core science and maths topics. This book will appeal to those studying courses in general engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical/electronic engineering, aerospace engineering and mechatronics, all of which make up the core science strands in the vast majority of Foundation degree and Higher National Engineering programmes.

Our book is for Engineering students at Foundation Degree and Higher National level who need to understand the complicated scientific principles involved in engineering.This book will deliver an accessible textbook that lecturers can use to support their teaching, but one that students can also pick up and browse through at their leisure. Knowledge-check questions, summary sections and activities are included throughout the book, and applied mathematics is integrated alongside the appropriate areas of engineering studies. The result is a clear, straightforward and easily accessible textbook that encourages independent study.
