Description - Engineering Communication: From Principles to Practice, 2e by Robert Irish
Engineering Communication: From Principles to Practice, 2e, is a writing and communications text designed to guide engineering students through the process of writing polished and professional documents. The text is organized around 18 principles of clear communication derived from linguistic theory that can be applied practically to everyday writing and speaking challenges. 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.
