Details: Product Description Tailored to the needs of the technical professional, this newly revised handbook is designed to teach engineers, scientists, and other technologists the basic management skills they will need to be effective throughout their careers. KEY TOPICS: Traces the historical development and describe the functions of management, from planning, and decision making to organizing, staffing, leading, motivating, and controlling. Includes an expanded discussion of engineering ethics. Describes the nature and application of management principles throughout the technology product/project life cycles. Discusses the transition from technical performer to technical management, the position of women and minorities in engineering management, effective time management, and the importance of professional ethics and conduct. MARKET: Engineers, scientists, and other technologists interested in enhancing their management skills.   About the Author Dr. Lucy C. Morse recently retired as an associate professor in the Department of Engineering Technology in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Central Florida (UCF).  She was both the Coordinator for the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology program and Director of Engineering Technology at a Distance, a program focused on using advance learning technologies to deliver engineering technology degrees to students on and off campus.  Currently she teaches engineering management as an adjunct for UCF and NTU/ Walden University.  She was the first woman to obtain a doctorate in engineering at UCF, receiving a PhD from the Department of Industrial Engineering in 1987.  In the early 90’s Dr. Morse served as a Program Manager at the National Science Foundation in the Engineering Directorate. In 2002 she was named a Faculty Fellow to the UCF Academy for Teaching, Learning and Leadership; she was named a Fellow in the University’s Teaching and Learning Center in 2005. Dr. Morse is a Fellow in the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and has served as an examiner for the national Malcolm Baldrige Quality Award and the Florida Sterling Award. Her experience in management came through her leadership roles in national and local volunteer organizations before she returned to engineering graduate school.  Dr. Morse has lectured on engineering management, quality management and distance learning education throughout the continental U.S. as well as in Spain, Romania, Ukraine, Germany and Antarctica. Daniel L. Babcock began his career as a chemical engineer, earning a BS at Penn State and an SM at MIT.  He then served three years as a USAF officer in development testing, three years as a chemist and technical writer for a silicone chemical manufacturer, and three years abstracting progress in solid propellant rocket development on a U.S. government contract.  Next, he spent seven years with North American Rockwell Corporation coordinating development and integration of solid and small liquid propellant rocket motors into the Apollo Command and Service Modules, engine with a leave to complete a Ph.D. in Systems Engineering Management at UCLA in 1970. Dr. Babcock then accepted a position as Associate Professor (later Professor) of Engineering Management at the University of Missouri-Rolla (no Missouri University of Science and Technology).  When assigned the introductory course in engineering management he found many fine textbooks in business management as well as some confined to specific technical areas (managing research, production, or projects), but none that included topics broadly needed in managing technology – dependent departments and companies.  Dr. Babcock began to supplement the assigned management textbook with handouts for his students on areas of his experience, such as project management, quality assurance, and reliability engineering.  He later outlined what he thought a more comprehensive text on Managing Engineering and Te
