Writing for Science and Engineering: Papers, Presentations and Reports

Writing skills is an essential skill for all undergraduates. This brief but practical guide analyzes the challenges faced by many academic writers.

A key feature of this book is that it has a particular focus on rhetorical situations – it aims to help students learn to think rhetorically, and to make decisions on how to compose a tailor-made paper for a specific purpose in a specific discipline. It aims to inspire students to explore, to collaborate, to think, and to discuss with peers, rather than only focusing on learning the rules.


Writing for Science and Engineering: Papers, Presentations and Reports

This book has adopted a professional approach in illustrating academic writing and publishing with examples.

Beginning with deciding titles (P.23-28), writing abstracts (P.31-36), choosing key words (P.37-40), the reference moves on to discuss writing introductions (P.41-44), presenting methodology (P.45-46), explaining research results (P.47-48), conducting discussions of results (P.49-52), and preparing references and footnotes (P.57-66). The appendices also provide useful guidelines for revising text after an initial draft is completed (P.183-186).


Writing for Science and Engineering: Papers, Presentations and Reports

Good English reading skills are critical and basic for students’ academic success. Written in a modular format, this book aims at helping students to improve their reading efficiency (unit 1), writing skills (unit 3), and discussion skills (unit 5).

Unit 1 illustrates with very clear and concise examples on how to master reading by predicting the content, skimming, scanning, finding the structure, and doing critical reading.

Unit 3 demonstrates how to construct an effective argument, and make counter arguments to further strengthen own standpoints. It also shows students how to support arguments with evidence.

Unit 5 provides tips on making short oral presentations. Tasks are available for students to apply the recommended techniques and practise their oral skills.
