This textbook tackles the task that details "The Journey of the Engineer" and creates its college course.

The 15 week course provides a semester's perspective covering the vast aspects of the road an engineering student may travel over the course of their career as an engineer.

It includes 15 chapters which act as the course pack for this undergraduate college course. They touch upon the undergraduate experience, going to grad school, being a teaching and/or research assistant, PhD and post-doctorate considerations, working for a corporation, working for a start-up, and working for a mid-sized firm. It also discusses getting a good job, the unemployment blues, financial aspects, teaching as a professor, and finally... intellectual property concerns.

About the Author

As an engineer turned author, Brian Shell has published numerous books, but as a professor of electrical and mechanical engineering, he was encouraged to create a college course and its accompanying textbook. He realized that "The Journey of the Engineer" was an area no university taught... until now.

He is an accomplished musician and artist who shares his insights of all the aspects of his life for one and all to learn from.

Brian received his bachelor's degree from Lawrence Technological University and his master's degree from the University of Michigan... both in electrical engineering.

He has studied and performed research at Stanford, UCLA, USC, San Diego State University, and at the University of Michigan - Dearborn. He published an IEEE journal paper after a summer at Michigan Technological University in Michigan's idyllic upper peninsula.
