Based on the authors' combined experience as engineering educators, the book presents a novel approach to technical writing, positioning formal writing tasks as engineering design problems with requirements, constraints, protocols, standards, and customers (readers) to satisfy. Specially crafted for busy engineers and engineering students, this quick-reading conversational text:

  • Describes how to apply engineering design concepts to the writing process
  • Explains how engineers fall into thinking traps, and gives techniques for avoiding them
  • Covers the essentials of grammar, style, and mathematical exposition
  • Highlights topics in writing ethics, including copyright, plagiarism, data presentation, and persuasion

Its mantra is: to write like an engineer, you must think like an engineer. Featuring illustrative examples, chapter summaries and exercises, quick-reference tables, and recommendations for further reading, this book is packed with valuable tips and information practicing and aspiring engineers need to become effective writers.
