For newly hired young engineers assigned to their first real project, there has been little to offer in the way of advice on where to begin, what to look out for and avoid, and how to get the job done right. This book is intended to give just that sort of help from an author with long experience as senior engineer in government and industry (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Exxon-Mobil). Beginning with guidance on understanding the typical organizational structure of any type of technical firm or company, and then going on to providing help on getting started with a project team, understanding key roles, and avoiding common pitfalls of new engineers, the author provides numerous hands-on examples of typical projects from representative industries and organizations of all kinds. In addition, the book will offer unique help on first-time experience working in other countries with engineering cultures that can be considerably different from that found in the U.S.
