Competent technical writing involves more than good English writing. Technical writing involves a keen ability to do ‘content editing’. This course will develop this ability in students. Content editing consists of a thorough reexamination of the logic, correctness and organization of the ideas in the report: both self-critically and in response to comments from others. The course will also teach how to thoroughly survey the technical literature on a particular subject and competently present the technical ideas of other researchers succinctly.
