Engineering Primer Texts for Physics Undergrads?

  1. Jul 13, 2011 #1
    Hey PF,

    I'm about to start my fourth year in physics, but I've recently been thinking about continuing my education in engineering rather than physics. The reason being I eventually want to go into international development, and engineering knowledge is much more useful to developing countries than physics knowledge is.

    I want to dive into EE, Mech, and Civil. What are some good texts out there for someone with a relatively complete undergraduate physics background?

    Also, please feel free to advise me in any way you can. Honestly, I only recently decided that academic physics wasn't for me. Unfortunately I know very little about anything else...
