I would like it if you can recommend me textbooks in Engineering that are geared to people from the pure sciences.

mainly on topics such as information theory, control theory, Solid and Fluid dynamics and Aeronautics & Aerodynamic Engineering.

Thanks.

I would recommend the following for solid and fluid mechanics:

* Any good graduate level textbook on continuum mechanics
* Intermediate Fluid Mechanics by Nunn

Also consider:

* Computational Fluid Dynamics by Anderson
* Rocket Propulsion Elements by Sutton
* Convection Heat Transfer by Bejan
* Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer by Siegal & Howell

These are graduate level texts I used in graduate school for mechanical engineering. They are very good and presented from the point of view of applied physics and math.
