Practicing structural engineers have an obligation to prepare correct, objective and useful professional documents for a variety of audiences including peers, managers, clients, vendors, contractors, and the public. Engineers with excellent writing skills understand that writing is an essential form of social interaction in their professions, and, therefore, consider the needs and expectations of these audiences as well as the norms and styles of the companies they represent. This SEU session, presented by Janel Miller of Business Process & Quality Management, introduced strategies and tactics for overcoming common communication problems, and provided practical guidance and examples to improve technical writing skills.
