ENGRC 3500 - Engineering Communications

Fall, spring. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: two first-year writing seminars and affiliation with a major. Enrollment limited to: juniors and seniors. Fulfills college technical-writing requirement. This course also fulfills a liberal studies requirement. May be used as free or approved elective in expressive arts. Limited to 20 students per sec.


Prepares students for important communication activities. They communicate using various types of documents (e.g., letters, memos, executive summaries, problem analyses, proposals, progress reports), give oral presentations, and incorporate graphics in their oral and written work. Students learn how to communicate specialized information to different audiences (e.g., technical and nontechnical people, colleagues and clients, peers and supervisors, in-house departments, and government agencies), work in teams, and address organizational and ethical issues. The course material is drawn from professional contexts, principally engineering, and it generates lively discussion. The class size ensures close attention to each student’s work. (Note: Absences are limited to three, after which sharp penalties occur.)
