As a professional engineer, you will likely be called upon to write (or at least review) contracts at some point in your career. If you intend to bid on a project, purchase equipment or hire a sub-contractor, a contract will be required. Except for the simplest of transactions, almost all agreements to provide a product or a service for commercial, industrial, or government work will require some type of contract. Thus, it is imperative that you understand the fundamentals of writing contracts - even if you have a huge legal department at your disposal.

In this course, you will learn the major elements of a contract. You will also learn how to protect your interests or the interests of your employer when writing a contract.
