The Role of Emotional Intelligence and Engineering Communication

Dr. Alex Ilyasova, Director of the Professional and Technical Writing Program at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, defines emotional intelligence and describes the important role that it plays in engineering work, particularly in communication within teams.

Her research on this topic was delivered at the IEEE PCS Conference in Limerick, Ireland in July 2015. If you’re interested and want to find out more, you can find her paper “Emotional competencies: Connecting to the emotive side of engineering and communication” at: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/
