Calculus for Engineering Students: Fundamentals, Real Problems, and Computers insists that mathematics cannot be separated from chemistry, mechanics, electricity, electronics, automation, and other disciplines. It emphasizes interdisciplinary problems as a way to show the importance of calculus in engineering tasks and problems. While concentrating on actual problems instead of theory, the book uses Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) to help students incorporate lessons into their own studies. Assuming a working familiarity with calculus concepts, the book provides a hands-on opportunity for students to increase their calculus and mathematics skills while also learning about engineering applications.

Key Features

  • Organized around project-based rather than traditional homework-based learning
  • Reviews basic mathematics and theory while also introducing applications
  • Employs uniform chapter sections that encourage the comparison and contrast of different areas of engineering


Upper-division undergraduates and graduate engineering students who need to learn more mathematics, especially through engineering-oriented applications
