Overcoming Challenges in Software Engineering Education Delivering Non Technical Knowledge and Skills Book Excerpt:

Computer science graduates often find software engineering knowledge and skills are more in demand after they join the industry. However, given the lecture-based curriculum present in academia, it is not an easy undertaking to deliver industry-standard knowledge and skills in a software engineering classroom as such lectures hardly engage or convince students. Overcoming Challenges in Software Engineering Education: Delivering Non-Technical Knowledge and Skills combines recent advances and best practices to improve the curriculum of software engineering education. This book is an essential reference source for researchers and educators seeking to bridge the gap between industry expectations and what academia can provide in software engineering education.

This book quickly gets down to the issues that many people grapple with when trying to use some of the more advanced features of the software and enlightens readers on the traps that some users fall into and how to avoid them. It demonstrates how the software ticks and explains some tricks that may be used to become more productive with the software and generate better schedules. Suitable for people who understand the basics of Microsoft Project but want a short guide to give them insight into the less intuitive features of the software. It is packed with screen shots, constructive tips and is written in plain English. The book is based on the Microsoft Project 2013, 2016 and 2019 but may be used with earlier versions of Microsoft Project as this book points out the differences where appropriate. The book picks out many of the key aspects from the author’s exiting books and adds a substantial amount of new and original text to produce a pocket guide that omits describing the intuitive and obvious functions and concentrates on the issues that many users get stuck on or find hard to understand.

High Speed Catamarans and Multihulls Book Excerpt:

High speed catamaran and multihull high speed marine vessel have become very popular in the last two decades. The catamaran has become the vessel of choice for the majority of high speed ferry operators worldwide. There have been significant advances in structural materials, and structural design has been combined with higher power density and fuel efficient engines to deliver ferries of increasing size. The multihull has proven itself to be a suitable configuration for active power projection across oceans as well as for coastal patrol and protection, operating at high speedd for insertion or retrieval with a low energy capability. At present there is no easily accessible material covering the combination of hydrodynamics, aerodynamics, and design issues including structures, powering and propulsion for these vehicles. Coverage in High Speed Catamarans and Multihulls includes an introduction to the history, evolution, and development of catamarans, followed by a theoretical calculation of wave resistance in shallow and deep water, as well as the drag components of the multihull. A discussion of vessel concept design describing design characteristics, empirical regression for determination of principal dimensions in preliminary design, general arrangement, and methods is also included. The book concludes with a discussion of experimental future vehicles currently in development including the small waterplane twin hull vessels, wave piercing catamarans, planing catamarans, tunnel planing catamarans and other multihull vessels.

Project Management Using Microsoft Project 2019 Book Excerpt:

Project Management Using Microsoft Project is an all-in-one training guide, textbook, and reference that covers each product of the Microsoft Project 2019 suite.Many training guides on technology are primarily manuals on features and functions of the software. The goal of this book is to show why those features and functions are important from a project management standpoint (based on PMI's Project Management Body of Knowledge), and then demonstrate how to effectively leverage that value through the use of Microsoft Project 2019.This is the third edition of a text that has been well-received by the project management community across 25 different countries since the release of Project 2013. The information in this book was selected based on Project Assistants' 25 years of project management consulting, Microsoft Project training, and managing real-world projects with Microsoft Project.This text is carefully designed to serve as a training guide, textbook, and/or reference guide. Included with the book are hands-on exercises with step-by-step illustrations built from actual Microsoft Project files that can be downloaded from our training webpage. There is a robust index as well as intuitively organized and clearly delineated sections, chapters, and sub-sections for easy reference. Each chapter has a learning-oriented structure with objectives at the beginning and 25-50 questions at the end that reinforce those points of emphasis. We also provide all answer keys and supporting PowerPoint slides for academic instructors upon request.
