Description

Faculty and employers who work with engineers have consistently identified four areas of deficiency in the engineers’ technical writing: clarity, organization, precision and economy. This third edition of the guidebook grew out of efforts to teach engineering students at the University of New Haven to improve their communication skills. David Adams lays out fourteen guidelines and numerous examples that students and faculty can use as common ground when discussing writing.
