Nearly every project, development, or study calls for concluding paperwork; some sort of a report. There have been many reminders and cartoons saying that "the job is not finished until the paperwork is done" But often there is reluctance on the part of those involved to pursue the task of preparing a report. This course explains why some of the reluctance appears, suggests a technology-based approach to writing, provides ideas and concepts that assist writers in creating and presenting material, and illustrates key methods in accomplishing the objectives of a report.

This orientation, then, can assist engineers with: Personally preparing a report and improving writing techniques. Directing the preparation of a report written by others. Mentoring engineers and other technologists in the improvement of writing skills.

This course is not a detailed lesson in English usage. It is rather a set of guidelines and recommendations that are intended to assist engineers in the creation of written reports by reviewing fundamentals and by describing an engineering approach to writing.
