English students working with Ocean Networks Canada
Students in English department Technical Communications courses ENGR 120 (Design and Communication II) and ENGR 240 (Technical Writing) are developing their writing and research skills by partnering with Ocean Networks Canada (ONC, http://www.oceannetworks.ca).
Students in enrolled in these classes interact with representatives of ONC, their “clients,” to learn more about the needs of this world-class ocean research facility. They then prepare technical reports and presentations recommending solutions to real world problems. The English department is proud to offer students opportunities to put their communication skills into action and celebrates student contributions to the work of ONC.
