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.
