UNESCO, dist. by Renouf Pub. & Bernan. 2010. 396p. illus. pap. $52.


Recognizing the need for more trained engineers worldwide, UNESCO commissioned this study for the purpose of increasing support for engineering education. The authors discuss engineering’s many subfields, its importance to human development, and emerging professional issues. They also provide statistics on global engineering education. This title effectively counteracts the notion that engineering is boring or too difficult to learn. Especially useful to career counselors and high school/college students.
