This book offers an essential reference to more than 80 careers in engineering. The engineering field encompasses everything from architectural engineers to food process engineers to flight test engineers, and beyond. But what all engineering jobs have in common is the need for qualified problem-solvers with the right technical skills to fill them. Even as the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts steady growth in demand for engineers through 2012, recent years have marked a decline in the number of qualified engineers graduating from college. As a result, many professional societies have launched campaigns to encourage students to pursue engineering as a career. ""Career Opportunities in Engineering"" can help those people interested in this field make a good career choice and find the kind of engineering job they most desire. The career profiles include: Acoustical engineer; Aerospace engineer; Biosystems engineer; Engineering technician; Food engineer; Forensic engineer; Geotechnical engineer; Nuclear engineer; Robotics engineer; Software engineer; Technical writer; Wastewater engineer; and more.
