Teaching Engineering Students to Communicate Effectively
AbstractThe importance of clear concise communication is often overlooked by the typical engineer and scientist. Based on the research findings, the paper emphasises the importance of communication skills in training students for technical and engineering professions. The author provides research findings in analysis of the most common mistakes in preparing PowerPoint slides, and in giving oral presentations. He shows practical outcomes and methodology for proper communication training. The published findings would help teachers of engineering and science subjects to find the way how to implement communication and presentation skills into technical subjects, as well as to increase efficiency of their technical presentations in educational process.
