Description

Students nowadays don't just need subject knowledge - they need to communicate well, by writing clear, well-structured reports and by presenting their information in a professional way to an audience.
This friendly, readable book guides science and technology students through all the communication involved in a typical course, from the first assignment to the final project report or dissertation. Detailed help and support is given, with lots of examples and practical advice, including how to apply for a job and succeed at an interview. Above all, this book will give its readers confidence that they can communicate effectively and get credit for their writing and speaking skills.
