Synopsis

Project Engineering The Essential Toolbox for Young Engineers by Frederick (President
Project Integrity Consulting,
Houston, Texas) 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

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