ENG 107 will focus on advanced approaches to written academic argument with emphasis on textual analysis and incorporating source material using readings and approaches connected to science and technology; more specifically, it will focus on what constitutes effective scientific and technical communication. With all the different forms of communication available, you should be able to utilize each form effectively and professionally. Good scientific and technical writing requires both an understanding of information and a firm grasp of the most effective way to present that information—form and content go hand in hand. The marketplace grows more competitive with each passing year; therefore, the importance lies not only in what you know but also in how well you present that knowledge. This course, therefore, should not be viewed as isolated from the rest of your courses, but rather as one that can enhance the work in which you are currently engaged.
