Communication Patterns of Engineers

"Knowledge is a building block, an essential ingredient of technological innovation. The rate at which knowledge is created, diffused, absorbed, or utilized influences the rate of technological innovation. Engineers and engineering are at the very core of technological innovation. Therefore, understanding how engineers produce, transfer, and use knowledge is a critical element of innovation, technological progress, and economic competitiveness. Carol Tenopir and Don King offer an astute presentation and analysis of what is know about the production, transfer, and use of knowledge by engineers.

  • "Advance Praise for Communication Patterns of Engineers:"Carol Tenopir and Donald King offer an astute presentation and analysis of what is known about production, transfer, and use of knowledge by engineers. Their book offers the most current thinking about the communication patterns of engineers. . . . It should broaden the view of students; serve as a valuable resource for scholars and researchers; and help practitioners shape policy, manage knowledge, and provide information services."-Dr. Thomas E. PinelliNASA Langley Research Center"This book presents, reviews, and analyzes data from research studies covering a broad array of relevant aspects of engineering communication, and creates a good picture of the complexities of 'engineering' as a field. Engineering educators and librarians will find useful direction and support in this book as they plan and collaborate on engineering education programs and library services for engineers. "-Kate ThomesHead of the Bevier Engineering Library, University of PittsburghCommunication Patterns of Engineers brings together, summarizes, and analyzes the research on how engineers communicate, presenting benchmark data and identifying gaps in the existing research. Written by two renowned experts in this area, the text:*Compares engineering communication patterns with those of science and medicine*Offers information on improving engineering communication skills, including the use of communication tools to address engineering departments' concerns about the inadequacies of communication by engineers*Provides strong conclusions to address what lessons engineering educators, librarians, and communication professionals can learn from the research presented"
