Historically, the need for communication skills was not particularly emphasized in engineering education. However, recent studies show that clear, spoken communication is an essential competency for an engineer. This book introduces key principles of communication that support clear exchanges in a technical context. Using self–assessment tools and practical examples, as well as engineering–specific case studies, the book helps engineers develop effective communication and presentation skills, allowing them to successfully respond to technical challenges in day–to–day engineering jobs.
