The Schedule for the Upcoming 5 Day Online FDP on Scientific & Technical Writing


Doing is necessary but not sufficient for science & technology. The problem, the process, the result, the discussion, and the conclusion ought to be communicated so as to achieve meaningful outcome. The requisite communication skill is neither trivial nor to be taken for granted.
However, compared to the hours and years of formal training on ‘doing’, training on 'communicating’ received by science & technology professionals is abysmal. This unfortunate pattern pervades world over, but is present to a debilitating degree in Indian institutes for higher education.
The problem is exacerbated by the fact that while the lingua franca of scientific & technical communication is English, it is not the first language of most Indians.

As the only government university on science & technology with its ambit across the entire state of West Bengal, it is incumbent upon MAKAUT, WB to take initiative on imparting high quality training on scientific & technical communication to its constituent knowledge communities. This Faculty Development Program is designed as an exercise toward that purpose.
