Technical Report Writing & Graphic Design
Technical professionals increasingly need to translate complex and innovative ideas into action. Imagine if all your findings, analyses, conclusions and recommendations were well documented and communicated, you would save time and effort by making your management's decision-making processes more efficient.
Effective technical writing is a critical component of clear and concise communication. Technical documents that successfully meet the needs of users result in lower costs, speedier acceptance of new or revised systems, and improved user efficiency.
Many technical reports have specific templates to use to provide a structure to the information; however, within each major section of a report, the information must be clearly presented and logically formatted.
This course provides a thorough grounding in essential technical writing principles, writing styles and practices. The use of graphic design and digital photo editing techniques to convey complex concepts and processes are also covered.
