Students who are just starting out in the field of mechanical engineering design are the target audience for Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design. Students will discover that the text inherently guides them into becoming familiar with the fundamentals of design decisions as well as the standards of industrial components. It combines the straightforward emphasis on fundamentals that teachers have come to expect with the more modern emphasis on design and new applications. This is what makes it so effective. This book has been considered the gold standard in machine design for almost half a century, and this edition stays true to the approach that has made it so successful.
Connect, which is offered by McGraw-Hill Education, can also be purchased as an extra, supplemental component. Connect is the only integrated learning system that gives students more control over their education by continuously adapting to deliver exactly what they need, when they need it, and how they need it. This makes students’ time in the classroom more productive. Connect makes it simple for teachers to give out homework, quizzes, and tests to their students, and it also grades and keeps track of the results of those assignments automatically. The problems are shuffled around to prevent students from communicating their solutions to one another, and they might also feature a “multi-step solution” that provides assistance to students who are having difficulty.
