Support for career skills

In addition to being proficient communicators in academic settings, there is also a need for Engineers to further develop and diversify their communication skills to suit a range of professional settings (Almeida, 2019).

Successful engineers are able to communicate successfully by convincing other people of their ideas, by clearly translating their messages into appropriate and understandable content (Dannels, 2002; Darling and Dannels, 2003) and by tailoring their messages effectively to their audience (Almeida, 2019; Darling & Dannels, 2003; Knisely & Knisely, 2015; Norback et al., 2009) in a clear, concise, and precise manner.
