Communication skills are an essential part of the engineer’s professional toolbox. Industry has long recognized this need. ABET also recognizes it in their accreditation criteria for engineering programs, specifically in Criterion 3, Student Outcome (g): “an ability to communicate effectively.”
LEES is interested in enhancing student communication skills in written, verbal, and visual forms. All the papers in this session cover at least verbal communication skills, and in some cases written or visual forms as well.
