"So You Want To Be An Engineer?" Book

February 01, 2015

Using the combined experience of authors Ray Floyd and Richard Spencer, "So You Want To Be An Engineer?" from Industrial Press Inc. provides students and engineers practical knowledge of what to expect as they enter the engineering field to pursue a career.

It also serves as a practical guide for guidance counselors and recent engineering graduates containing topics infrequently found in other introductory engineering texts: mentoring, interviewing, intellectual property, and how to navigate the variety of career choices. Every chapter contains a recommended reading list for additional information, and most chapters include problem-solving tasks that help students master the topic.

The book includes multiple appendices, sample reports, presentations, test plans, and other examples of skills employees will use on the job.
