Developing effective oral and written communication skills is an integral part of becoming a successful engineer. You will be surprised by the amount of feedback we have received from the industrial advisory board emphasizing the importance of effective communication. No matter which job you take, you will need to communicate effectively to be successful in your career. If you plan to get into grad school, writing effective research papers and delivering presentations will be very crucial for your professional growth.

This website contains several resources for helping engineering students to write effective reports and deliver great talks. There are several short videos and podcasts under “A guide to effective writing”.  We have also included power point tips, sample student reports from the past years, and a comprehensive list of various search engines. Enjoy exploring these and have fun learning how to communicate effectively.
