Specialized Communication for Technology Students, ENG 1133

ENG 1133, Specialized Communication for Technology Students is an academic-workplace writing bridge course offered by the New York City College of Technology, CUNY. The College Catalog describes it as, “Academic as well as occupational writing such as lab reports and bids, emphasis on the documented report, summarizing material and writing letters. Written presentations frequently utilize visual aids such as graphics, maps and charts.” I designed my class to draw on my expertise in the IT field and my research interest in retrocomputing to give students an interesting and useful engagement with the kinds of writing and communicating that they need to do in their careers.
