Technical Report Writing
- Library, Edinburgh Campus
Do you know which material should go in the appendices and which in the main body of a report? Can you write a full yet succinct executive summary?
This session is most suited to undergraduate students in years 3-5
A good report is easy to recognise. Its title is precise and informative, its layout and format are well organised, with diagrams, graphs and tables well-presented and fully labelled. The writing style is accurate, fluent and concise, with headings to indicate the content of each section. This workshop will help you understand the purpose of a report, how to plan it and how best to structure it in terms of presentation and layout. It will also offer 'good advice' on what you should (and should not) do.
