Newest edition of Rizzoni’s Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering textbook published, available in several languages

The sixth edition of the textbook Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering, co-authored by Center for Automotive Research Director Giorgio Rizzoni and James Kearns of York College of Pennsylvania, hit the shelves in 2016.

Rizzoni, who is appointed professor in both The Ohio State University’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering authored the first edition of the textbook in 1993. For the most recent edition he has joined with Kearns, an associate professor teaching in the areas of mechatronics, computer applications for engineers and electrical circuits.

The book provides a solid overview of the electrical engineering discipline that is especially geared toward non-electrical engineering students. Building on the use of many practical applications from all fields of engineering to illustrate core principles, the case studies even include an exciting look into the technology of Ohio State’s Venturi Buckeye Bullet.

Updates to this edition include online personalized learning resources, numerous instructor resources and special summary and overview sections. In addition to its English-language printing, the book has also been printed in several languages, including Korean (pictured above).

The book is published by McGraw-Hill Education.
