Engineering Communication: From Principles to Practice, Second Edition, is a writing and communications text designed to guide engineering students through the process of writing polished and professional documents.

The principles are supported by numerous tips found in marginal boxes, exercises in new "Try This" boxes, and writing samples that clearly demonstrate how each principle can be applied to everyday communication challenges. This resource also includes a series of appendices covering the fundamentals of grammar, plus a new primer on ethics for engineers.

FEATURES

Thoughtfully organized. Organized around eighteen principles of clear communication that can be adapted and applied to a variety of communication tasks, the text ensures that students have the tools they need to develop superior writing and presentation skills.

Applied approach. Students are taught transferable skills rather than simply being given templates to copy, giving them a workable and versatile knowledge of grammatical, effective writing. The book demonstrates how each principle can be applied to everyday communication, and further supports these applications with numerous authentic writing examples.

Helpful learning tools. The text includes numerous tips, exercises, and writing samples. It also includes a series of appendices covering the fundamentals of sentence structure, verbs and verbals, modifiers, joiners, punctuation, fallacies, and a new primer on ethics for engineers, all designed to support students in writing polished and professional documents.

Review:

"This book provides a thorough coverage of the technical aspects of writing, including sentence structure, rhetoric, and paragraphs. . . . I particularly appreciate the thoroughness of the book on discussing strategies for presenting concepts, arguments, and information so it will have the
highest impact. The advice is very good and will definitely help students to present their concepts clearly."
--Michael McGuire, University of Victoria
