Dowling’s Engineering Your Future: An Australasian Guide, Fourth Edition is used for first year, core subjects across all Engineering disciplines. Building on the previous editions, this text has been updated with new references, while still maintaining a strong and practical emphasis on skills that you need for problem solving and design. Numerous topical and locally focused examples of projects across engineering disciplines will help you understand the role and responsibilities of a professional engineer. Themes of sustainability, ethical practice and effective communication are a constant throughout the text.

Available as a full-coloured print textbook with an interactive eBook code, this resource has a variety of digital media embedded at the point of learning such as videos and knowledge-check questions to engage you and help consolidate your learning.


  • Video interviews with a variety of engineers in the field provide you with real-world insights and advice through  ‘tales from the front’.

  • In-situ, auto-graded knowledge check questions embedded throughout the e-text help to test your comprehension.

  • Feature boxes highlighting ANZ engineering in practice help you connect the theoretical to practical
