As we celebrate International Women In Engineering Day today, Wiley author, Sheri Sheppard discusses her reasons for becoming an engineer. "Of all the things that I like about engineering, I like the variety in my work the most, from working with design teams, building devices, teaching classes, running experiments, and analyzing systems. I am interested both in designing things and the PEOPLE who do design.” Dr.Sheppard’s new title, Engineering Mechanics: Statics, published this past May. She and her co-authors, Thalia Anagnos, and Sarah L. Billington believe strongly in nurturing young women to join the profession.
