This book shows engineering students how to write and speak more effectively and develop the communication skills essential to success in their academic careers and on the job. The authors focus specifically on what an engineer needs on a day-to-day basis, providing an qengineering approachq to technical communication that features practical examples and situations from today\'s industry.Based on the engineering concept that anything that interferes with efficient communication is qnoise, q the book shows students how to make their signal-to-noise ratio as high as possible. Such things as grammar errors, typos, poor organization, and fuzzy thinking are treated as noise that needs to be eliminated from the message, so that communication can be as effective and efficient as the engineering ideas it conveys.Honda Insight.
