Book Description

Comprehensive engineering science coverage that is fully in line with the latest vocational course requirements

  • New chapters on heat transfer and fluid mechanics
  • Topic-based approach ensures that this text is suitable for all vocational engineering courses
  • Coverage of all the mechanical, electrical and electronic principles within one volume provides a comprehensive exploration of scientific principles within engineering

Engineering Science is a comprehensive textbook suitable for all vocational and pre-degree courses. Taking a subject-led approach, the essential scientific principles engineering students need for their studies are topic-by-topic based in presntation. Unlike most of the textbooks available for this subject, Bill Bolton goes beyond the core science to include the mechanical, electrical and electronic principles needed in the majority of courses.

A concise and accessible text is supported by numerous worked examples and problems, with a complete answer section at the back of the book. Now in its sixth edition, the text has been fully updated in line with the current BTEC National syllabus and will also prove an essential reference for students embarking on Higher National engineering qualifications and Foundation Degrees.
