We Are The Engineers: 11/28/17
Nearly a year after the webcomic Wasted Talent ended, a signed copy of the first print volume fell into my lap. Rather, my daughter and I found it at our newly opened (re-opened / re-incarnated) local book store. My daughter loves graphic novels, especially ones that are nonfiction, or inspired by real life). That it's set at UBC where we have a relative who is a professor, was an added bonus.
We Are the Engineers by Angela Melick chronicles her time at UCB as a Mechanical Engineering student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. The humor is centered on the toughness of the courses, the huge piles of homework, general life at UBC as well as the job market outside of university.
The book is short and hilarious. You can read it in about an hour. The first book was so good that I've tracked down and purchased the second in the series, Welcome to the Real World.

I included a link to the webcomic in the review. That might be the easiest way to read it if you can't track down the printed copies.
