Careers in Chemistry
by Franceschetti, Donald R

9781283959797Donald R. Franceschetti (Editor)Careers in ChemistryIt is estimated that the United States will have over 1 million job openings in STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields and occupations by 2018. From stimulating development in computer systems and telecommunications to answering fundamental scientific questions, the growth of STEM-related careers and the investment in science education will play a key role in the future of our nation. While in reality, occupational growth and stability in certain fields, such as civil engineering and particle physics, will depend on political outcomes in the short term, investing in a solid education in STEM fields will all but guarantee opportunity. Careers in Chemistry contains over twenty alphabetically arranged articles describing a specific branch or field of science, with an accompanying discussion of a particular STEM-related career or occupation within that area. - Description from Syndetics
