This course will familiarize students with strategies for effective writing of engineering documents. Areas covered include:
- Identification of audience and document purpose
- Analysis of component parts of engineering documents
- Adapting templates for effective document design
- Planning and implementing the writing process
- Revision techniques
Although engineers spend much of their time preparing a wide variety of documents, many feel under-trained in this important area of practice. Course participants will learn how to create effective engineering documents. Special attention will be given to optimizing the writing process -- from start to final revision.
