Engineers are designers, builders, and inventors. An engineer is behind just about everything around you—hybrid cars and laptop computers, wind turbines and tennis rackets, roller coasters and rockets. This book introduces students to 12 fascinating men and women working in engineering. The engineers describe what they do, how they got into it, and why they enjoy it. They pass on the excitement of being an engineer and the many paths to becoming one.
