1.1 WHY WRITE REPORTS?
• Reports are written for a number of reasons,
- (lets forget about this one) as a student you must do them to get marks
- to let other engineers know the results of an experiment
- to leave a record of work done so that others may continue on
- as a record you may use yourself if you must do work again some time later
- they are required for legal reasons (contract or legislation)
- they bring closure to the project
