Writing for Engineering and Science Students is a clear and practical guide for anyone undertaking either academic or technical writing. Drawing on the author’s extensive experience of teaching students from different fields and cultures, and designed to be accessible to both international students and native speakers of English, this book:

  • Employs analyses of hundreds of articles from engineering and science journals to explore all the distinctive characteristics of a research paper, including organization, length and naming of sections, and location and purpose of citations and graphics;
  • Guides the student through university-level writing and beyond, covering lab reports, research proposals, dissertations, poster presentations, industry reports, emails and job applications;
  • Explains what to consider before and after undertaking academic or technical writing, including focusing on differences between genres in goal, audience, and criteria for acceptance and rewriting;
  • Features tasks, hints and tips for teachers and students at the end of each chapter, as well as accompanying e-resources offering additional exercises and answer keys.

With metaphors and anecdotes from the author’s personal experience as well as quotes from famous writers to make the text engaging and accessible, this book is essential reading for all students of science and engineering who are taking a course in writing or seeking a resource to aid in their writing assignments.
