    Great Book

    ¿Opportunities in Engineering Careers,¿ by Nicholas Basta, has a lot of useful information for anyone interested in engineering. This book is very well put together, and it covers every aspect of engineering. It talks about the common elements of engineering, classic engineering, modern engineering, engineering specialties, engineering technology, and engineering education. It has every bit of information that everyone should know about engineering. Some of these jobs are mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, and nuclear engineering. <P> There are so many different aspects of engineering, and Basta has done a great job of compiling it all into one book. He talks about the ups and downs of engineering careers and makes it an interesting book. This subject is a hard one to cover completely, but the Basta makes it thorough and by his incite on everything it makes it interesting.
