Science diplomacy and policy can support collaborative national and international science for advancing knowledge with societal impact in fields such as climate, space, medicine, and the environment. Scientific advances made possible by the basic and applied research carried out by government agencies, universities, and nongovernmental organizations create opportunities and challenges with growing impact on policy decisions. Developing structures that produce the best science information to policy makers is becoming more critical in an ever-changing world.

This text serves as the companion text to Introductory Engineering Mathematics, which introduces common mathematical concepts we see in engineering, including trigonometry, calculus, and functions. This text assumes a level of mathematics of a high school senior, plus some elements from the introductory text. Additional concepts we see in engineering are also introduced: specifically, matrices, differential equations, and some introduction to series. After, the basics of system analysis, including stability, are explored.

A new approach to seismic assessment of structures called endurance time method (ETM) is developed. ETM is a dynamic analysis procedure in which intensifying dynamic excitations are used as the loading function. ETM provides many unique benefits in seismic assessment and design of structures and is a response history-based procedure. ETM considerably reduces the computational effort needed in typical response history analyses.

Design, within the context of engineering, is a term that is sometimes difficult to define. Design can be innovative, impressive, and earthshattering, but it can also be observed in the building of simple devices using everyday materials in a classroom environment. This text examines the concept of design, where success means that the designers fulfilled the established requirements, stayed within the specified constraints, and met the evaluation criteria as optimally as possible.

This book will examine the problem of under-represented populations (URPs) in the so-called “STEM” fields: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, this problem is especially acute in computer science. Who are these underrepresented populations? What creates them? And finally, why should there be concern about URPs in STEM?
