1 T h i l W iti * Technical Writing* Reza Langari Department of Mechanical Engineering Texas A&M University [email protected] * Based on original slides by Bryan Rasmussen, TAMU MEEN Technical writing ability is essential as an engineer. Email from former A&M student to Dr. O’Neal : Dennis: That's great to hear about 260 and 404… I might have mentioned it before, but my manager here was impressed with my writing and report skills. I hated it while I was going through all those lab classes, but now I appreciate why all of that was being drilled into us! I know that the writing abilities of Aggie engineers have sometimes been criticized by employers, but I think the program's on the right track with it now. I'm sorry for hating it before! Have a great day. Thanks, Amy Basic principles: Write for with the audience in mind à Assume an “uninformed, but intelligent,” reader Focus on relevant results and conclusions à Include all necessary details à Do not include irrelevant data Plots, tables, and figures should be self-explanatory Grammar, spelling, and style count Never hide, obfuscate, or omit bad results Why are you doing the experiment? What is the theoretical/scientific basis of the experiment?
