Professional Communication 2

Course Overview

Course description

The objective of this course is to guide students in the writing of common text types (genres) needed when working in scientific and engineering communities and presenting that information in an oral form. Students will first study the essential skills of good professional communication: accuracy, clarity, and conciseness. They will then learn to apply these skills in the writing of e-mails, memos, summaries, proposals, and technical reports. At the end of the course, students will polish their oral presentation skills, and learn how to design an effective presentation that communicates their message in an accurate, clear, and concise manner.
