As an engineering student, the author attends laboratory courses. Aside from conducting experiments, writing lab reports make these classes heavenly experiences.
In some laboratory classes, reports are required to be written in engineering lettering. You can't be an engineer without going through this rite of passage. Forget the PC or laptop, grab your 1-3-3 guidelines and 0.3 sign pen and begin the art! Use of correction pen is a NO-NO. Your work must be perfectly written. No errors! As lovers of art, the use of JPCS font and fast draft printing is considered heinous. Every experiment is done with love thus three pages of the report are dedicated for data analysis.
Other lab courses require computerized reports. The disheartened students [they love handwriting] generously embellish theirs with decorative images and pictures of the actual experiment.
A few people know that engineering students have a way with words. Students write with finesse by beating around the bush. They express a single sentence in two paragraphs. Magical things of the unknown can be inserted within the these. The outcome? The student just gets the instructor impressed with the fat report and receives a 90+ mark.
Engineering students are not only trained in the technical skills but in the arts and letters as well. Every student is on his or her way to becoming a renaissance man or woman with the wholistic training they get from the program.
