This workshop can be tailored to suit scientists or engineers, both of whom require writing skills for which they may have had no formal training.
Scientific research demands precision. While scientific writing should reflect this precision in the form of clarity of meaning, this ideal is not often attained. A brilliant experiment may have been completed, yet if the results cannot be explained clearly and concisely, and the reader is not convinced of their importance, the experiment will go unnoticed or undervalued.
Likewise, practising engineers are required to write proposals, specifications, reports, conference papers, correspondence. Writing is perhaps the most important way in which information is conveyed to managers, fellow engineers, clients and other project stakeholders. An engineer’s communication skills will therefore support their success as an engineer, alongside their technical expertise.
This workshop covers the basic principles and practices of scientific and technical writing, including structuring a technical report or a paper for a journal or conference proceedings, the integration of illustrations in the document and using language that is clear, concise and correct.
