Research Methods in Science and Engineering
Suitable as a text for first-year graduate students or senior undergraduates in any science or engineering discipline, this book focuses on the process of conducting research rather than on discipline-specific methods. The first half of the text focuses on the scientific method in practice. The second half of the text deals with skills and knowledge important to the research process, including statistical measures in research, ethics, and safety. Exercises and examples are provided throughout the text to guide both students and instructors.
