This book is designed to provide an accessible course in the basic engineering principles and applications required in a wide range of vocational courses. No prior knowledge of engineering is assumed.
I trust that Engineering Fundamentalswill be found to be a worthy successor to my previous introductory books on general and mechanical engineering. As well as offering up-to-date best practice and technical information, this new title has been fully matched to the latest courses, in particular Level 2 NVQs within the Performing Engineering Operations scheme from EMTA and City & Guilds (scheme 2251). Guidance on the depth of treatment has been taken from the EMTAIndustry Standards of Competencedocuments. EMTA are the NTO for the development of
NVQs (the UK’s National Vocational Qualifications) in all aspects of engineering.
