Engineering Communications TOOLKIT


This web site is designed to supplement your Engineering Communications Toolkit that you received as part of your engineering courses.

As an engineer, technical writing and communication skills will be among the most important ones you can develop!  In fact, engineering professionals have ranked technical writing as 2nd and public speaking as the 4th most important skills in their work. This is why oral and written communication should be taken just as seriously as the hard skills of engineering, such as, calculus, physics, mechanics, etc. 

This toolkit and the links to the left will provide you with tips, guidelines, templates, and grading rubrics to help you develop your writing and verbal communication.
