Your writing as an engineer or scientist is important for two reasons. First, the content matters--the writings of engineers and scientists deeply affect the health and safety of society. Second, you need to be able to write effectively to advance in your career. What might surprise you is that a large gap exists between what you have learned about writing in high school and first-year English and what is expected of your writing in engineering and science. Through short films, model documents, self-study guides, and templates, this website tries to bridge that gap.
