Abstract

The CE 4101 Project Management and Economics course that introduces engineering students to a rhetorically-situated and process-based approach to organizational writing is described. The writing component of the course, introduces students to a systematic method for attaining a more realistic description of audience, purpose, and action. In CE 4101, the writing consultant's lectures take place during the large project management course lectures and the writing assignments are tied explicitly to project management practice. Students actively engage in the application of process and strategy in the completion of the writing assignments in CE 4101 because the writing consultant is incorporated as an integral part of the project management course.
