Gr 9 Up—A handy reference for teens thinking of engineering as a possible career choice. Each volume describes a particular type of engineering, with helpful infographics that show details such as median pay, minimum educational requirements, and future job outlook. The chapters cover what the titular engineer does, how to become one, what skills and qualities are needed, what the work is like, opportunities for advancement, the future of the field, and an interview with someone from the field. Most individuals shown are white males. The “Find Out More” section in each title offers addresses and websites of organizations to contact for information, along with a description of each organization’s purpose. VERDICT A helpful, though not very inclusive, look at career choices for high schoolers.
