Description
ENGCMP 0412 Engineering Communication in a Professional Context, is a required course for all Swanson School of Engineering first-year students enrolled in ENGR 0012. In ENGCMP 0412 students write a significant research paper for the Swanson School of Engineering's Annual Conference on Sustainability, held near the end of the spring term. Students compose this paper in teams of 3; students also compose individual papers reporting and reflecting on their experience with teamwork and with researching, composing, assessing, and presenting written work within a context of maximum personal and professional responsibility and integrity. In ENGCMP 0412 students undertake intensive research into a current engineering innovation/technology. Students expand upon that research as they move through a multi-step process of writing and revising a conference paper that includes considerable technical content as well as intensive analyses of the social value and ethical applications of that technology. Through ENGCMP 0412, students will continue to increase their experience and success with major teamwork projects, will practice best policies and procedures for professional communication and presentation, will continue to learn about and practice communication modes and expectations in engineering, science, and technology, and will continue with an academically and intellectually rigorous process (begun in ENGCMP 0210, Seminar in Composition: Engineering), of understanding and communicating what it means personally, educationally, professionally, socially, and globally to "be an engineer."
