The course simulates the work environment in a typical high tech company by basing the writing project on a highly technical topic. Just as in the real world, you’ll receive a draft written by an engineer that you must rewrite, reorganize, and illustrate under deadline pressure to produce a final draft worthy of publication. You’ll learn about the writer’s role on technical writing projects from inception and planning through editorial review and final production. When you finish the course, you will have a polished writing sample that you can add to your portfolio.
