Course Detail: STW-1000 - Technical Writing


This 20-hour course will provide an introduction to technical writing for fourth-year aerospace engineering university students. Through both online and face-to-face instruction, students will achieve learning outcomes based on rhetorical concepts, basic grammar, and technical writing conventions. By capitalizing on students' intrinsic motivation of soon beginning journeys into careers which require the production of technical writing, students will engage with relevant content which will be read, discussed, analyzed, and utilized in performance-based assessments that simulate real world applications of technical writing. Performance-based assessment allows students to demonstrate their understanding of the constraints and conventions of their future jobs as related to written communication, and their ability to produce such writing within this specific domain.
