Here is a pretty site that can tell you what different types of engineers do. Designed for high school girls, Engineer Your Life has good information for any student who may have been just bitten by the engineering bug but is not quite sure where to go.
I’ve always wondered what the difference between industrial, manufacturing and mechanical engineering are and Engineer Your Life tells you not only what the disciplines include, but also the kinds of careers you might enter, projects you might work on and — oh yeah– how much money you might expect to start with once you graduate. You can also find tips on how to find and prepare for college engineering programs.
Their Facebook page has lots of great shares on it (although I wonder why they don’t have the new cover photo?) I got here after following the bunny trail that started with Society of Women Engineers. More on them and the great work they do later!
