What’s the signal-to-noise ratio in your communication?
To succeed as an engineer, you need more than technical know-how. You need to be an effective communicator. Eliminate the glitches that trip up the busy reader or listener, causing annoyance, confusion, or misunderstanding—so that your writing and speech are crystal clear.

Written for engineers and students of engineering, A Guide to Writing as an Engineer, Third Edition focuses on the technical writing and speaking issues you will face in your day-to-day work such as reports, business letters, office memoranda, proposals, emails, presentations, and more. You’ll learn how to:

-Eliminate the “noise”—grammatical errors, typos, poor organization, and unclear phrasing from your writing
-Create effective professional engineering documents, such as inspection and trip reports, laboratory reports, specifications, progress reports, proposals, instructions, and recommendation reports
-Communicate visually with PowerPoint and other graphic tools
-Stand out from the crowd with better application letters and resumes
-Deliver oral presentations and speeches with confidence
-Avoid plagiarism and other ethical pitfalls that engineering writers encounter

With updates on handling new media, from email and PDFs to wikis, forums, blogs, and social media, the Third Edition of A Guide to Writing as an Engineer will make your communication as impressive as your ideas.
