Preparing a concise, well written request for proposal (RFP) is a key requirement for design and construction professionals. The Committee on Specifications of the Construction Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers has written Preparing Requests for Proposals and Specifications for Design-Build Projects as a guide for professionals and project owners. This publication explains in detail the key steps in writing a request for proposal. Topics discussed include: an overview of RFPs and their role in design-build projects; various approaches to project contracts, including projects not suited for design-build; the definition and vision for the project; a detailed chapter on writing the actual proposal, including qualifications and technical considerations; an explanation of general contract terms and conditions; and a final chapter detailing unusual and specific contract specifications. This title includes appendices with sample requests for technical criteria and project specifications. This publication will be invaluable for anyone involved with RFPs in construction engineering.

The Handbook of Engineering Design aims to give accurate information on design from past publications and past papers that are relevant to design. The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 deals with stages in design as well as the factors to consider such as economics, safety, and reliability; engineering materials, its factors of safety, and the choice of material; stress analysis; and the design aspects of production processes. Part 2 covers the expansion and contraction of design; the preparation of technical specification; the design audit; and the structure and organization of design offices. The text is recommended to engineers who are in need of a guide that is easy to understand and concise.

Based on a program at the University of Pittsburgh, the College of Engineering at the University of Arkansas (UA) initiated the Freshman Engineering Program (FEP) in the fall of 2007. The program's purpose is to introduce students to general principles of engineering while allowing them to explore their discipline. The administrators of FEP wished to see freshman composition integrated into their introductory courses as it was at the University of Pittsburgh. While complete integration may not possible, opportunities exist to tailor freshman composition to the needs of engineering students. This project seeks to outline what such a course would look like, how it would meet both the needs of FEP and state/university requirements for freshman composition, and how implementation would take place.
