Electrical Engineering in Context
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING IN CONTEXT: SMART DEVICES, ROBOTS & COMMUNICATIONS by bestselling author Roman Kuc describes the basic components and technologies that make today’s computer-assisted systems operate and cooperate, inviting the reader to understand by participating in the design process. Directed at the undergraduate electrical engineering student, this book starts with the basics and requires a working knowledge of algebra. Rather than simple plug-and-chug exercises, the book teaches sophisticated problem-solving and design tools. Students will learn through designing digital displays, extracting information from signals, and optimizing system performance through parameter value selection and observing graphical data displays. Animations showing dynamic system behavior and relating to the book figures are available through the book’s companion site. At the completion of the course, students will have an understanding of the capabilities of current digital devices and ideas for possible new applications. This will benefit students in other courses requiring quantitative skills and in their profession. To help accomplish this tall order, the book is written in a graduated intensity that can be adapted to the specific needs and talents of each student: Basic commands and graphs are used in first-level problems that illustrate device performance while varying parameter values and in designs that are open-ended, driven by student curiosity. Some problems can be solved using software packages, but many exercises are for paper and pencil solution. MATLAB based examples and problems are also included for users comfortable with computer programming.

Enrico Fermi (1901 – 1954) was an Italian-American physicist particularly known for his work on the development of the first nuclear reactor and for his contributions to the development of quantum theory, nuclear and particle physics, and statistical mechanics. He was awarded the 1938 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on induced radioactivity. Fermi is widely regarded as one of the leading scientists of the 20th century, highly accomplished in both theory and experiment. Along with J. Robert Oppenheimer, he is frequently referred to as “the father of the atomic bomb.” His lecture notes, especially those for quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, and thermodynamics, were transcribed into books which are still in print, including THERMODYNAMICS, which remains his most important publication. With his characteristic clarity, in this classic on Thermodynamics, Fermi explains the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, entropy, thermodynamic potentials, and much more.
The third edition of this well-used textiles workbook closely matches the new Study Design. The focus of the workbook is on developing and refining key skills, through relevant and engaging activities. Students will buy one book or the other (Nelson Product Design and Technology VCE Units 1-4 Workbook: Wood, Metal, Plastics) and some of the pages are designed to be directly used as part of their folio. This workbook reinforces the student book material, and gives it practical application.
This write-in workbook is an invaluable resource to help learners’ improve their Maths and English skills and help prepare for Level 1 and Level 2 Functional Skills exams. The workbook format enables learners to practice and improve their maths and English skills and the real-life questions, exercises and scenarios are all written with an automotive context to help learners find essential Maths and English theory understandable, engaging and achievable. This workbook is an invaluable resource to support Maths and English learning in the classroom, at work and for personal study at home.
