This booklet is designed to provide information to girls about the nature of and possible career opportunities in engineering. Following a brief introduction in which the characteristics of engineers are outlined (such as ability to solve problems, interest in science/mathematics, and urge to make creative use of their intelligence), answers to five questions are provided in subsequent sections. These questions are: What is engineering? What kind of girl becomes an engineer? What is it like to be a student in engineering? How do you enter a college of engineering? and What's it like to be a woman engineer? Answers to the questions are accompanied by statements of female students, practicing engineers, and faculty, and by black and white photographs and line drawings. (JN)
