Successful Technical Writing 

All messages fit within a broad communication environment. The large amount of technical information that professionals must consolidate and explain in technical documents requires skills to ensure that that information is understood by the intended audience. This course explores methods for understanding the communication context, guiding the selecton and organization of information, revealing the structural plan for the information, integrating visuals, and communicating with effective sentences and paragraphs. You will learn the critical elements of technical writing. 
  • Audience and purpose
  • Organizational strategies 
  • Document design principles (including effective use of graphics) 
  • Writing and revision methods 
Engineers, scientists and technical writers and editors who spend much of their time writing, revising and editing documents will find this workshop useful in honing their technical communication skills.
