TECHNICAL and
BUSINESS WRITING

Technical Writing, defined as that used in technological fields like computer hardware and software, engineering, chemistry, aerospace, robotics, electronics, and the like, is a growing field. Many college programs in engineering and science require a technical writing course. Unfortunately, writing courses (and the instructors) often have nothing to do with the kind of writing you'll be asked to do as a professional engineer, scientist, or business man or woman. Dr. Write's Lab is staffed by Technical Writing teachers who have years of experience writing for business and industry. Bring your own technical writing here to have it energized and cleaned up, or let one of our lab technicians help you with your technical writing assignment.

A wide range of different writing jobs and formats come under the umbrella term of Business Writing, including communications within a company and communications with the public or other organizations on behalf of the business. Examples include newsletters, memos, letters, proposals, reports, power point presentations, press releases, marketing brochures, copywriting, resumes, and job applications

At the Lab you'll find six rooms; three that deal with technical writing and three that deal with business writing. Technical Writing I is a basic introductory level course, Technical Reports explains how to turn raw data or a rough draft into a readable report, and Field Requirements explains the differences between the various technical areas.

The Business writing section covers these areas: Writing Proposals, which leads you through the skills necessary write a grant proposal which will increase your chances for scoring a "hit," Resumes and Cover Letters, which tells you how best to present yourself on paper to improve your job chances, and Documentation, which covers the skills necessary for producing easy-to-follow procedures and clear information.
