Technical Writing Essentials is designed to meet the basic communication needs of students and working professionals in scientific or technical fields. This course is also an excellent introductory writing course for students intending to pursue a certificate in technical writing. Technical Writing Essentials covers issues of purpose and style while allowing students plenty of focused practice with short writing exercises. Students will compose letters, memos, electronic messages, collaborative projects, mechanism descriptions, instructions, and short reports, and they will deliver brief oral presentations. Work will be graded on a portfolio system, where revision will be rewarded. Because much of the actual course work will be generated in class, attendance is mandatory. As with all Business and Technical Writing courses, a significant amount of independent research is required to complete the course assignments.
