Dr. Karen Juneau, assistant professor and chair of career and technical education at William Carey University’s Tradition campus, had her most recent book, entitled Engineering Drawing Problems: Workbook Series First Edition to Accompany Technical Drawing with Engineering Graphics, published in January 2011 by Pearson/Prentice Hall. In addition, Dr. Juneau has written another book published by Prentice Hall, Engineering Drawing: Problem Series 3, which has been revised for four editions.
All of Dr. Juneau’s books were co-written with a friend and former colleague, Paige Davis. Davis is the Assistant STEPCoordinator and Construction Management and Industrial Engineering Instructor at Louisiana State University.
Dr. Juneau’s new book is designed to be an educational workbook for high school students and undergraduate engineering and graphic engineering majors. The book covers a wide range of engineering graphic skills, from basic sketching to using the AutoCAD computer software.
Dr. Juneau said that “the idea of the book is to isolate target concepts with short exercises so that it is just enough material to see where students need additional instruction.”
Before coming to WCU in 2010, Dr. Juneau was an assistant and then an associate professor in the department of technology education at The University of Southern Mississippi from August 2003 to July 2010. She obtained both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in industrial education from Texas A&M University before earning her doctorate of philosophy in career and technical education in 1997 from Louisiana State University, where she taught for eight years.
