Engineering Communication Manual will serve the engineering communication and engineering design courses required for the undergraduate engineering student. Intended for the first-year engineering major as well as the student about to begin a professional career, the text addresses the writing issues and communication approaches specific to the discipline, like collaborative writing, field reporting, and poster presentations. Above all, the text asks students to synthesize elements of technical argument and to think critically about how they present content. Engineering Communication Manual's distinctive module-based format allows instructors to assign stand-alone readings and activities for the students, depending on their familiarity and experience with engineering communication and design projects. The direct format also complements the engineering student accustomed to "plug and chug" solutions. Accessible, dynamic, and full of relevant examples, Engineering Communication Manual focuses on the student as well as reflects the worldview of the engineering professions. The text will be accompanied by instructor resources like assignments, prompts, and rubrics for specific learning objects; annotated samples of student work in several genres and media; and suggestions for using the book in different courses, like first-year design m lab courses, third-year technical communication or capstone design.

A practical how-to book, ENGINEERING COMMUNICATION is more than a guidebook for creating clear, accurate and engaging communication -- it is a complete teaching tool that includes the use of technology to produce dynamic written, oral, and visual communication. There are numerous complete examples, many taken directly from either student or business samples. It also asks students to critically examine the goals and methods of engineering communication. Written with step-by-step instruction on how to create both written and oral communication, the pedagogy includes end-of-chapter exercises to give the students opportunity to use what they have learned, and for the instructor to assess student mastery.

Given that communication is the lifeblood of an organization, managerial leaders need to understand how to use communication strategies to build their teams to achieve organizational objectives. Studies repeatedly point to the impact communication skills have on the ability of managerial leaders to succeed or fail. Too often individuals move into managerial leadership roles without awareness of the need to improve their communication skills. These individuals may be subject matter experts whose technical skills allowed them to succeed as individual team members, but when placed in managerial leadership roles, they fail because they lacked the relationship building skills needed to foster teamwork. Therefore, this book provides the communication principles that are so critical for today's managerial leader. It builds a solid foundation while it guides readers in strategies to enhance their written, oral, and interpersonal communication skills. Most research has stated, and the author has found true in her own managerial leadership roles, a leader spends the majority of his or her day interacting with others. As managerial leaders, individuals face many challenging situations such as determining how to inspire a shared vision about goals and objectives, building trust within their unit, listening with an open mind, giving feedback, and encouraging collaboration, to name a few. The focus switches for the managerial leader from doing things to leading others. Therefore, this book is for anyone who currently serves as a managerial leader or for anyone who desires to manage and lead others. Most managerial communication books focus on the important written and oral communication skills. While the author believes these skills are critically important, she found in her role, as a managerial leader, she devoted the majority of her time to interpersonal communication. Leaders need to build teams and to maintain relationships with all stakeholders. The best way to make that happen is through skills such as listening, asking questions, and giving feedback. Therefore, this book includes an emphasis on interpersonal communication. As Chris M. Martin stated in a recent article, "The ability to communicate effectively may be the number one management quality." Therefore, this book will raise awareness relative to oral, written, and interpersonal communication skills so that individuals can become better managerial leaders.

A Scientific Approach To Writing For Engineers And Scientists

A SCIENTIFIC APPROACH TO WRITING Technical ideas may be solid or even groundbreaking, but if these ideas cannot be clearly communicated, reviewers of technical documents—e.g., proposals for research funding, articles submitted to scientific journals, and business plans to commercialize technology—are likely to reject the argument for advancing these ideas. The problem is that many engineers and scientists, entirely comfortable with the logic and principles of mathematics and science, treat writing as if it possesses none of these attributes. The absence of a systematic framework for writing often results in sentences that are difficult to follow or arguments that leave reviewers scratching their heads. This book fixes that problem by presenting a “scientific” approach to writing that mirrors the sensibilities of scientists and engineers, an approach based on an easily-discernable set of principles. Rather than merely stating rules for English grammar and composition, this book explains the reasons behind these rules and shows that good reasons can guide every writing decision. This resource is also well suited for the growing number of scientists and engineers in the U.S. and elsewhere who speak English as a second language, as well as for anyone else who just wants to be understood.
