The PCS-sponsored book series “Professional Engineering Communication” is a new and thriving enterprise. This series addresses, specifically, the needs of IEEE membership, focusing on professional communication elements, techniques, concerns, and issues.
If you are interested in authoring, editing, or contributing to this series, please contact the series editor, Traci Nathans-Kelly, Ph.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will provide to you the Proposal Submission form. The series editor also accepts book proposals on other relevant topics.
Created for professional engineers, technicians, academic administration/faculty, students, and technical communicators in related industries, this series is a targeted set of materials that focuses on very real, daily, on-site communication needs. With an eye to realistic examples, gleaned from engineers and their colleagues, this series aims to produce resources that are new, unique, and on task.
This series is uniquely positioned to meet the communication needs for the practicing, experienced engineer in industry, research, or academia. After finding solutions to projects or problems, the second most important activity of an engineer is to communicate findings, results, advances, setbacks, and new ideas. From seasoned practicing engineers who could use a refresher on how to use the newest of communication technologies, to graduate students looking to publish a first paper, to entrepreneurs writing patents on an exciting new product, to faculty and administrators navigating ABET visits, the hope is that this series can assist.
PCS proposed this series in a response to requests by IEEE members for a set of materials that meets their specific professional needs. In addition, administrators and faculty teaching in these areas may be interested in the content for professional development, for administrative support, in-class use, or for insight as to how on-site engineers in various fields approach daily communication tasks.
