Module 6 – Report Results
When working in engineering, you will often need to discuss plans or designs with others. The ability to clearly communicate is essential to collaborative work. It is particularly important when working with non-engineers, as the engineer must take technical information and convey it clearly to those without advanced technical knowledge. This way, progress and options are understood by everyone involved.
Proper documentation and reporting is extremely important for design engineering projects. In ME 270, you are reporting on your project at the Design Expo, a final presentation, and a final report. These documents will be used by future students who can learn from your work. Your audience for the report are key stakeholders or people who have technical knowledge of mechanical engineering, and/or are familiar with your project throughout the semester.
