IEEE-USA E-Book Call for Authors

By Georgia C Stelluto

IEEE-USA E-Books seeks authors to write an individual e-book, or a series of e-books, on career guidance and development topics.

In particular, we are looking for authors for our new and ongoing series on Shaping an Engineering Career.   This series is about the personal journeys of engineers in their careers. Shaping an Engineering Career e-books will include personal recollections by engineers and managers who can demonstrate through life experiences the satisfaction from being immersed in their careers.

We want to know what you learned during your career that you wish to pass on to your colleagues. What were your experiences? Who provided guidance? Why did you take the route you did? What were the obstacles, if any?

We want the e-books in this special series to stir the imagination of younger engineers by showing how experienced engineers and managers built their careers, and the issues they confronted. While we have listed specific areas of engineering below, keep in mind there are many types of engineering. E-books should be between eight and ten thousand words:

Book 1:   Introduction to the Series (Gus Gaynor)

Book 2:   Technological Leadership

Book 3    Engineering Environment:  Management’s Expectations

Book 4:   Digital Technology: Hardware Engineering

Book 5:   Digital Technology: Software Engineering

Book 6:   Research

Book 7:   Product Development

Book 8:   Manufacturing Engineering

Book 9:   Equipment Design

Book 10: Systems Engineering

Book 11: Engineers as Innovators and Entrepreneurs

Book 12: Advancing to Management

 

 If you have an idea for an e-book that will educate other IEEE members on a particular topic of expertise, email your e-book proposal to E-Book Chair Gus Gaynor and IEEE-USA Publishing Manager, Georgia C. Stelluto.
