IMechE Technical Report Writing

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


We have designed this practical course to support anyone needing to create, compile, edit or manage technical documents.

Anyone involved in technical work will quickly discover the challenges presented when trying to communicate their ideas, information, proposals or recommendations to others. All too often, the impact of many hours of work can hinge on the ability to explain the results quickly and effectively to others.

This practical, one-day face to face course or virtual option is designed to present the key principles of technical document creation and explain how to make the task as simple as possible using tools and techniques to improve the quality and reduce the time needed to produce effective technical documents.

Who should attend?
This programme is suitable for engineers and non-engineers at all levels but is particularly useful for those new to report writing in a business context.
