Mantras of Electrical Technology
About the Book
For many, an attractive future is simply to step into a technological utopia. But in reality, we live in a complex adaptive surroundings. The mission of these mantras is to sensitize and train the young engineers of tomorrow about the future of the industrial world and most importantly to advance the frontiers of technology. The mantras have deciphered many complicated scientific ideas in an accessible way. If engineers of the future are to play a useful role in delivering sustainable development, then the young engineers of today need to be equipped with the knowledge and understanding that will enable them to practice in a way that meets the new requirement of their profession. This book has been written primarily toward equipping the future generation of engineers with the skills that will be necessary for them to embrace their new responsibilities.
