Students in engineering courses can learn technical writing skills without having to spend large amounts of valuable class time. Given design-project handouts that contain a problem statement and a list of design specifications, students are asked to solve the problem and they are expected to write a report that includes a title page, abstract, table of contents, introduction, body, conclusion, and reference list. Handouts, which are provided at the beginning of the project, are models of the technical reports the students are expected to prepare.
