Answers by Anastasia M Venable-Nappen

Stephanie,

Oral and written communication is extremely important in every engineering field. You have to effectively communicate with colleges, vendors, production, and contractors when working on projects to make sure everyone is on the same page and things are done properly. I have had to present project reports regularly as a project manager and am always writing technical reports. Technical reports include the project scope which includes detailed information about equipment, the mechanical installation, electrical installation, automation, civil and structural requirements, standard operating procedures, process flow diagrams, equipment layout and process instrumentation details and drawings, and many other items. I also am required to complete monthly reports that detail project status compared to budget and original timelines. I have worked with some people during my career that can't communicate well (orally and written) and it makes things much more difficult than they need to be.

I hope this helps.
