by Newborg, Beth; Ford, Jr., Michael W. ; Budny, Dan;

Quality Approaches in Higher Education Vol. 1 (2) August 2010 article by Dan Budny, Beth Newborg, Michael W. Ford, Jr. of the University of Pittsburgh. This paper describes the English/ Freshman Engineering Writing Program (E/FEWP) at the Swanson School of Engineering, University of Pittsburgh. This ongoing collaboration among engineering and English department faculty and engineering librarians has made university-level research and writing an essential, integral part of the engineering experience. By describing the writing projects and the concepts that created them, we hope to provide useful tools to assist other educators in developing and/or enhancing the use of writing within their engineering curricula and classrooms.
