Description

Writing for Engineers Refining papers for publishing: a course for post-docs

In this course we will work directly with text written by you, the course participants. We will analyse and edit extracts from draft and published papers, always with the aim of honing the language to improve clarity, precision and style. In doing so we will explore questions of grammar and key concepts in academic writing, learning to identify weaker areas and developing expertise in improving them.

The course consists of four workshops followed by one individual supervision.
