Writing an Engineering Paper

Sciences and Engineering Workshops

Sarah Gibson, UCLA Electrical Engineering, GWC Writing Consultant

This workshop covers the basics of how to structure and write an engineering paper. We will also discuss voice, style, and transitions, as well as compare models of "good" vs. "bad" writing. The workshop will be applicable to engineering journal and conference papers, as well as to master's and doctoral theses and proposals. (Approx. 30 minutes. Recorded in 2012.)
