“From Sundaes to Space Stations: Careers in Civil Engineering”
by our Outreach Coordinator, Reed Brockman
Intended, as Reed puts it, to be an “easy read”, this book tells stories and offers real life examples so that any reader will be able to clearly understand what a civil engineer really does. He intentionally keeps non-technical; this book can easily be read by anyone sixth grade or above. Great for kids and adults!
|Engineer Your Future is your first step in viewing our contests and information on becoming an engineer.
