Summary: Improve the signal-to-noise ratio in your writing!
You'll need more than just technical prowess to succeed as a professional engineer; you'll need to be an effective communicator.
Specifically written to address the needs of engineers, this brief, easy-to-use guide gives you an efficient and direct way to improve your writing and speaking skills. The authors focus on those writing activities that engineers perform on a daily basis, such as reports, business ...show moreletters, office memoranda, and e-mail, as well as oral presentations.
Now updated to reflect rapid changes in how we communicate, this Second Edition covers writing as part of a project team, plagiarism and ethics, email effectiveness and privacy, presentations using PowerPoint, and applying for jobs using the internet.
With this book, you'll learn how to:

  • Reduce the "noise" in your writing, by eliminating grammatical errors, typos, poor organization, and fuzzy thinking.
  • Correctly document information taken from other sources.
  • Increase your chances of landing the job you want.
  • Construct clear and effective graphics.
  • Avoid ethical pitfalls.
