About the EECS the Communication Lab

The EECS Communication Lab offers writing, speaking, and visual design support for scientists by scientists. 

Our Communication Advisors are EECS graduate students and post-docs who have been trained rigorously so that they are both content experts and communication coaches.  The EECS Communication Advisors are available to help you with individual coaching for any scientific communication task you are working on – from to publications to conference talks.

In addition to offering coaching, the EECS Communication Lab is developing a spring semester 6-credit communication course that will launch in February 2016.
