Engineering Communication Support


Technical communication is hard. The Engineering Communications Support Team is here to help!

The Faculty of Engineering offers FREE Engineering Communication Support drop-in hours. All engineering students are welcome, from first-year to doctoral-level. 

We can provide guidance and instruction on the following:

  • grammar and punctuation
  • sentence structure
  • constructing strong engineering arguments
  • writing concisely
  • finding, evaluating, and integrating research
  • citing and referencing 
  • oral presentations
  • page design and formatting and much more!

Visit us in CEI 1162

Drop-in hours until Dec. 11 are as follows:

  • Mondays 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Prof. Lisa Salfi)
  • Tuesdays 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. (Dr. Lindsay Miller-Branovacki)
  • Wednesdays 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Dr. Don Bourne)

Please note that this is not an editing or proofreading service. Our goal is to help you to understand the concepts of effective communication and apply them to your work.

For now, appointments are not necessary. Please drop in during the hours listed above. Support will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. If there is a line-up, sessions will be limited to 15 minutes per student.

We also have a Blackboard page that will soon feature resources and announcements. If you would like to be added to this Blackboard page, please send an e-mail to  

We look forward to seeing you!
