Discipline- or Field-Specific Undergraduate Course Communication Resources

Module by: The Cain Project in Engineering and Professional Communication. E-mail the author

Writing, presenting, discussion, and making posters can help students understand key course concepts or apply them to specific circumstances. While working with faculty in the schools of engineering and natural sciences at Rice University, instructors from the Cain Project in Engineering and Professional Communication have prepared assignments and supporting materials for communication instructions appropriate to specific fields. Some of these materials also explain techniques or situations that will be common in a specific field, such as designing legible graphics with software packaged, MATLAB, used in Chemical Engineering.

The materials listed below were designed for courses in specific departments, but they may be relevant to other courses as well. You may look for your own field in the grouped materials, but be sure to consider those labeled "general" or "professional" as well.

The preparation of these materials was funded through a generous grant from the Gordon and Mary Cain Foundation.
