Careers in Engineering
From the Set Getting Started
Engineering professionals design and build everything from roads and rollercoasters to skyscrapers and spacecraft. They also help solve environmental problems--such as pollution and flooding--develop renewable energy resources, and try to make the use of fossil fuels less damaging to the earth. Careers in engineering are an excellent fit for those who like to design and build things, enjoy solving problems, and want to make the world a better place. Engineering is just one of 10 exciting titles in the Getting Started series. In this book, you'll learn about dozens of career options, typical education paths, ways to pay for training (e.g., scholarships, grants), methods of exploring the field while in school (e.g., summer camps, competitions, clubs, books, websites, tours, information interviews), and much more.
