Technical Writing Advice

I also write a blog called The Art of Scientific Communication.  It’s aimed primarily at graduate students in engineering and science who are faced with the daunting task of writing a thesis and who could use some help and advice to make the experience less stressful and overwhelming.  However, the advice I’m posting on that blog will be useful to anyone who is facing a technical writing challenge including practicing engineers, undergraduates in science and engineering or technical school students.

Here are some examples of posts on The Art of Scientific Communication blog:
