Synopsis

Project Engineering The Essential Toolbox for Young Engineers by Frederick Plummer

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 gives this advice 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, author Plummer incorporates numerous hands-on examples and provides help on getting started with a project team, understanding key roles, and avoiding common pitfalls. In addition, he offers unique help on first-time experiences of working in other countries with engineering cultures that can be considerably different from the US. .Reviews essentials of management for any new engineer suddenly thrust into responsibility .Emphasizes skills that can get you promoted-and pitfalls that can get you fired .Expanded case study to show typical evolution of a new engineer handed responsibility for a major design project

Reviews

Project Engineering is an excellent reference work on the basis of launching an engineering career amd staying on the right course.

Project Engineering was written with two goals in mind: helping the freshly minted engineer survive his or her first foray into the workforce and aiding the established working engineer as he or she seeks to advance to a leadership oisition.

Beginning with a description of the scope of a project engineer's typical areas of responsilbiliy, Plummer noted that they run the gamut from core planning to safety, risk management, cost control, and scheduling. Civil Engineering, Ray Bert
