Professional Communications provides practical, comprehensive advice on best practice for professional engineering communications. The purpose of this handbook is to convey information to the reader accurately and simply. The book presents in-depth coverage of the requirements for many forms of documentation, along with editorial conventions, editing and proofreading, writing style, conference or display posters, and oral presentations of technical material. Readers can choose a specific topic and read that chapter; this resourceful handbook does not have to be read sequentially. Engineering professionals and students will benefit from the concise information listed in this handbook about what is needed in an effective engineering document.

About the Author
Heather Silyn-Roberts, Ph.D., is a senior lecturer in mechanical engineering at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and has published two previous books.
