Examines a methodology for incorporating effective communication skills into the engineering curriculum. Engineers need to develop better skills in problem definition and in communication. One should view engineering as an integrative process in which analysis, synthesis, and creativity combine to serve societal needs. A starting point might be to integrate written and oral communication skills directly into the engineering curriculum. Laboratory and senior design projects are ideal for an interdisciplinary approach to improving communication skills. Instructional staff from the school of humanities could assist the engineering faculty to meet these goals. The author suggests a sequence of communication courses to help improve engineering communication skills
