Seminar in Composition is a course taken by almost all undergraduates at the University of Pittsburgh. Seminar in Composition: Engineering undertakes the goals of Seminar in Composition within a first-year (and beyond) engineering context. First-year Swanson School of Engineering (SSOE) students in Seminar in Composition: Engineering will explore engineering disciplines, practices, methods, ethics, and education and will analyze their own views and goals as engineering students and as future engineers as they are learning about and practicing writing as a rigorous, disciplined form of critical inquiry and a responsible form of communication. In Seminar in Composition: Engineering, students will strengthen their knowledge and practice of the textual conventions required of university- and professional-level writing and will, via drafting and revision, regularly reexamine the clarity and effects of their writing processes and outcomes. Writing instruction will take place in the ENGR 0011 or 0711 classroom, so students won’t have a separate class meeting for ENGCMP 0210; be sure that your ENGR and ENGCMP courses meet at the same day and time in the same classroom.
