Technical Communication for Engineers

Starting 13 January 2015

Presented by Hilary Hart and Leah Guren

Do you know any engineers who might be interested in STC and IEEE’s newest online course, Technical Communication for Engineers? If so, let them know about this!

The ability to communicate technical information effectively is important for all engineers. Specifically, technical communication is valuable to engineers for two reasons:

  1. Engineers need to be able to explain and document their work. However, these skills are seldom covered in enough depth in engineering programs and most engineering programs do not cover writing skills from the perspective of a technical communicator.
  2. There is a shortage of technical communicators with a strong engineering background; that makes this a lucrative and attractive career for some engineers.

"Technical Communication for Engineers", beginning 13 January 2015, offers a fast and effective entry into the theory and application of technical communication. It is designed specifically for engineers of all ages and backgrounds. The material is presented at the level of a graduate seminar by two experts with extensive experience. This online course combines the best of live lectures (with interactive Q&A) with the convenience of online training. Participants have access to a virtual classroom for handouts, homework submission, and opportunities for collaboration with fellow students.

To put it simply, this is a can’t-miss opportunity for engineers.
As an added bonus, IEEE members can take the course at the discounted STC member price of $595.
