March is National Engineering Month in Canada!
Ontario celebrates February 26 – March 6, 2011.
To help promote engineering and National Engineering Month, Engineering & Computer Science Library asked faculty members from the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering to suggest books that they found inspiring or important in their career as an engineer. The suggestions are included in a virtual display on Engineering & Computer Science Library’s home page for the month of March, and are also listed below.
Thank you to all faculty members who contributed suggestions. Lets hope these books inspire a whole new generation of engineers!
