IT 120 - Technical Writing

This course is designed to help students develop skills that will enable them to produce clear and effective scientific and technical documents. Focus will be on basic principles of good writing-which scientific and technical writing shares with other forms of writing-and on types of documents common in scientific and technical fields and organizations. While the emphasis will be on writing, oral communication of scientific and technical information will form an important component of the course, as well. The processes and techniques used to produce manuals and other supporting documents to communicate complex and technical information more easily will be explored. Semester Credit Hours: 1.00 Contact Hours: 15/0/0/15 Prerequisite: EN 104 - English Composition I . Corequisites: None.
