The purpose of Applied Engineering Design is to help product development teams understand the product development process and develop a successful product. The course provides students a culminating and hands-on experience to apply their acquired knowledge and skills to solve real-world problems through an open-ended project. The topics in the book will help students integrate their engineering design into the overall product development process. These topics will facilitate successful product development, either for a class project, a small business, or a large enterprise. Therefore, students in other design classes or design challenges and product development professionals may also find this book helpful.
