Not meant to be creative
Isaac Jackson, College Junior

This is a good piece that helps students realize the importance of having logical flow in a paper. They also talk about the importance of having a presentable looking paper, which includes a title page and proper formatting. I like how they mention that engineering papers are not meant to be creative; they should be straight to the point. I know most of this already since I am junior but it might be good for freshman.
Formatting IS everything
Sid Huhndorf, College Senior

This advice presented on the CSU website is spot on in my opinion but the piece of advice that shot out at me was the formatting documents advice. As I move through my Engineering degree I'm quickly realizing that the capability to understand abstract complex concepts as well to masterfully convey them to others is what makes an engineer vs. just some joe blow that can crunch numbers. The heart of masterfully conveying complex concepts is to be able to format them in whatever document beautifully and naturally so that the target audience has absolutely no issue following.
