Shows how the engineering curriculum can be a site for rendering social justice visible in engineering, for exploring complex socio-technical interplays inherent in engineering practice, and for enhancing teaching and learning Using social justice as a catalyst for curricular transformation, Engineering Justice presents an examination of how politics, culture, and other social issues are inherent in the practice of engineering. It aims to align engineering curricula with socially just outcomes, increase enrollment among underrepresented groups, and lessen lingering gender, class, and ethnicity gaps by showing how the power of engineering knowledge can be explicitly harnessed to serve the underserved and address social inequalities. This book is meant to transform the way educators think about engineering curricula through creating or transforming existing courses to attract, retain, and motivate engineering students to become professionals who enact engineering for social justice. Engineering Justice offers thought-provoking chapters on: why social justice is inherent yet often invisible in engineering education and practice; engineering design for social justice; social justice in the engineering sciences; social justice in humanities and social science courses for engineers; and transforming engineering education and practice. In addition, this book: Provides a transformative framework for engineering educators in service learning, professional communication, humanitarian engineering, community service, social entrepreneurship, and social responsibilityIncludes strategies that engineers on the job can use to advocate for social justice issues and explain their importance to employers, clients, and supervisorsDiscusses diversity in engineering educational contexts and how it affects the way students learn and develop Engineering Justice is an important book for today s professors, administrators, and curriculum specialists who seek to produce the best engineers of today and tomorrow.

A modern take on microelectronic device engineering Microelectronics is a 50-year-old engineering discipline still undergoing rapid evolution and societal adoption. Integrated Microelectronic Devices: Physics and Modeling fills the need for a rigorous description of semiconductor device physics that is relevant to modern nanoelectronics. The central goal is to present the fundamentals of semiconductor device operation with relevance to modern integrated microelectronics. Emphasis is devoted to frequency response, layout, geometrical effects, parasitic issues and modeling in integrated microelectronics devices (transistors and diodes). In addition to this focus, the concepts learned here are highly applicable in other device contexts. This text is suitable for a one-semester junior or senior-level course by selecting the front sections of selected chapters (e.g. 1-9). It can also be used in a two-semester senior-level or a graduate-level course by taking advantage of the more advanced sections.

Machine learning can be a difficult subject if you're not familiar with the basics. With this book, you'll get a solid foundation of introductory principles used in machine learning with the statistical programming language R. You'll start with the basics like regression, then move into more advanced topics like neural networks, and finally delve into the frontier of machine learning in the R world with packages like Caret. By developing a familiarity with topics like understanding the difference between regression and classification models, you'll be able to solve an array of machine learning problems. Knowing when to use a specific model or not can mean the difference between a highly accurate model and a completely useless one.

"What does AI mean for your business? Read this book to find out." -- Hal Varian, Chief Economist, Google Artificial intelligence does the seemingly impossible, magically bringing machines to life--driving cars, trading stocks, and teaching children. But facing the sea change that AI will bring can be paralyzing. How should companies set strategies, governments design policies, and people plan their lives for a world so different from what we know? In the face of such uncertainty, many analysts either cower in fear or predict an impossibly sunny future. But in Prediction Machines, three eminent economists recast the rise of AI as a drop in the cost of prediction. With this single, masterful stroke, they lift the curtain on the AI-is-magic hype and show how basic tools from economics provide clarity about the AI revolution and a basis for action by CEOs, managers, policy makers, investors, and entrepreneurs. When AI is framed as cheap prediction, its extraordinary potential becomes clear. Prediction is at the heart of making decisions under uncertainty. Our businesses and personal lives are riddled with such decisions. Prediction tools increase productivity--operating machines, handling documents, communicating with customers. Uncertainty constrains strategy. Better prediction creates opportunities for new business structures and strategies to compete. Penetrating, fun, and always insightful and practical, Prediction Machines follows its inescapable logic to explain how to navigate the changes on the horizon. The impact of AI will be profound, but the economic framework for understanding it is surprisingly simple.
