Changing the Conversation - Engineer Inside You?

Fortuitously at the recent Oklahoma Women in STEM Mentoring Kickoff in Tulsa, we met Barbara Wollmershauser among others. She is a passionate font of knowledge and connector of people and ideas. Thanks to Barbara!

 Changing the Conversation

Changing the Conversation strives to encourage more compelling, 
effective communication to the public about engineering and engineers. The National Engineers Week Foundation has joined forces with the National Academy of Engineering on this national campaign that offers research-based messaging, resources, and simple steps that you can take right away. By changing how we present engineering, we can encourage young people to make a difference in the world through an engineering career. - See more at:

3)  The Is the Engineer Inside You? by Celeste Baine is also available free as a PDF download.  See the home page link below.

Fifteen years ago, while a biomedical engineering student at Louisiana Tech University, Celeste Baine wrote the First Edition of Is There an Engineer Inside You?: A Comprehensive Guide to Career Decisions in Engineering. It was the book that she wished she'd had when she wanted to go to engineering school.

The new Fourth Edition covers 38 different types of engineering and engineering technology, how to succeed in engineering school, women and minorities in engineering, engineering careers that make you say "wow!", salary information and much more. This book has been the #1 engineering career book at Amazon and a high-ranking career guide for over a decade.  It was recently positively peer-reviewed by over 50 engineering and engineering technology professors and is the most comprehensive book on engineering careers in the marketplace.

Across the nation, 30-40 percent of students drop out of engineering each year. Is There an Engineer Inside You? can help. Find out what engineering is all about before you start college.

Why is Award Winning Author Celeste Baine Doing This Book Give Away?

“I am completely committed to making a difference in the world. I think about it before I fall asleep and it gets me out of bed every morning. Engineering school is the best thing I ever did for myself. It enabled me to feel like I leap tall buildings in a single bound, run faster than a steaming locomotive, and have the ability to solve any problem that comes my way.  I do what I do because I think an engineering education can take you anywhere you want to go. It’s a great launching pad for the rest of your life because it will help you in everything that you do and want to do.”  Celeste Baine.
