So You Want To Be An Engineer
What to Learn and What to Expect
Ray Floyd, Richard Spencer
This book is based on the authors’ 100-plus years of experience as engineers and provides students with practical knowledge of what to expect as they enter the engineering field with a career in mind. Besides students, it will also serve as a practical guide for guidance counselors and recent engineering graduates, and contains topics infrequently found in other introductory engineering texts such as 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.
