What does TRAC mean to you?

I’m one of the small but ever-growing number of engineers in the TRAC program. Hence, my day-to-day experiences with writing don’t consist of much more than piles of homework and textbooks. That isn’t to say that there isn’t room for writing in the engineering discipline. At its heart, effective writing corresponds to a clear thought process and is therefore relevant to nearly all fields of study. This view of the universal nature writing is what I find most appealing in the TRAC program- not only is it the driving idea behind writing across the curriculum, it also supports the notion that writers with very different backgrounds can help one another communicate more effectively.
