    The Encyclopedia of Electrical and Electronics Engineering is a unique, comprehensive reference work that defines the entire discipline, bringing together the core knowledge from every one of the many specialties encompassed by electrical and electronics engineering. It is the ideal starting point for research projects, whether addressing basic questions in power systems and communications, or learning advanced applications in neural networks and robotics. In addition to electrical and electronics engineering applications, the Encyclopedia features important topics of interest to engineers, including: education; historical background of fields in electrical and electronics engineering; patents; technology and society; and computer and software engineering.

    Customers who purchase the 24-volume work receive an initial one-year institutional subscription to the online version.


    From the Reviews...

    "...the American Society for Engineering Education gave this encyclopedia its award for "Best Reference Book". And indeed, with over 1,450 articles spanning 24 volumes and 19,000 pages, this is the most comprehensive encyclopedia for electrical engineering in existence."
