"This is a great introduction to engineering principles that will really engage those progressing towards their WJEC Vocational Award in Engineering. It is a subject with a paucity of well written texts aimed at this subject at this particular educational level and therefore really fills a gap. // The text is written to flow through concepts of engineering and design that pulls in ideas on application in the workplace which could really help to introduce the readers to potential career paths in the field of engineering". 5 star Amazon review
