For a one-semester, undergraduate course that introduces the basics of information technology and engineering for students outside the electrical engineering and computer science disciplines. Assuming no formal engineering or computer science education, this book prepares students from various disciplines to take advantage of new information technologies. The goal is to teach leadership skills that students can utilize throughout their careers, rather than just survival skills. This book was the basis for a course at Lucent Technologies focused on introducing financial managers to this area.
The material was inforrmation successful, got very positive reviews all around, and will continue to be a key part of our education of non-technical managers in important infrastructure markets, technologies, and capabilities. Allows students to vary parameters and observe results, letting them see the underlying principles of information technology in action. Brings information technology to those with little prior experience, and develops a solid understanding of the concepts of information technology.
