Abstract

The engineering discipline has seen many changes in the twentieth century. At the beginning of the century, it was neatly classifiied into many branches, e.g., thermodynamics, electromagnetic theory, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, mechanics, etc. In the last two decades, there is the beginning of a movement to recognise the common elements of these branches and thus to reunite the engineering field. These tendencies are apparent at university level by the number of universities that now run common first years to their engineering degrees, the introduction of mathematical modelling (MM) courses into the curricula, and the use of new computer technology and improved software. This book deals with MM and the use of new software in engineering education.
