Timothy D. Blackburn, MBA, PE
Usually, books and courses on technical writing are written for a general audience. Finally, this is a course written specifically for Architects, Engineers, and Constructors. It includes effective technical writing techniques as well as a grammar and punctuation refresher that you can use as a quick reference, written in the context of our disciplines. Examples are from sentences we use and write each day. The course discusses common mistakes and word usage. In addition, it includes practical Technical writing tips to elevate and polish your written work. While it is not practical (nor necessary) to review all facets of grammar, punctuation, and technical writing essentials, the course cover many of the typical weaknesses and mistakes we as Engineers and Architects make. So join with me as we improve our Technical writing skills.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end that was designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
