Over the course of a career, every engineer needs to communicate, in both written and oral form, with other engineers and non-engineers. Yet, too many engineers never develop this basic skill. Engineering Words draws on the authors’ extensive experience as technical communicators and their popular class in technical communication for engineers at the University of California, Riverside, to present a comprehensive introduction to communicating in the business world.
This book covers everything from the basics of clear writing to resumes to cover letters to requirements documents to presentations and much more.
