Career Success in Engineering by Bernard R. Berson; Douglas E. Benner; Bernard Berson; Bernard BersonToday's time-pressed college engineering instructors have little time to discuss the real-world matters of employment, on-the-job performance, project management, leadership, ethics, and licensure that provide students with needed preparation for their professional futures.

Students and new professionals may be at a disadvantage as they try to link their theory-based education with an application-based practice. Authors Bernard R. Berson and Douglas E. Benner share a common vision for nurturing young engineers and addressing this shortcoming. Drawing on the authors' own experiences, as well as those of other engineering industry leaders, Career Success in Engineering covers critical issues for current and recently graduated engineering students.
