This paper is an attempt to give some guidelines on how to write a good technical paper and to make good presentations, important skills for a successful career in research and teaching. 
AN OVERVIEW OF ASPECTS TO PROMOTE GOOD PRACTICE OF WRITING OF LABORATORY REPORTS
TLDR
An overview of aspects that can contribute to promote good practice of writing of laboratory reports and hence result in students producing better reports is presented.
Posters vs. lectures [student presentations]
TLDR
The author gives information and recommendations on preparing for a poster session, and advice is given on how to make sure that the poster is effective in terms of graphic impact.
The Master's Thesis: An Opportunity for Fostering Presentation Skills
TLDR
A presentation-skills training that uses the Master's thesis as an opportunity for fostering presentation-related skills that shows that students following the proposed methodology had higher than average marks, and 82% of them receiving an A+ with distinction over a 4-year period from 2009 to 2013.
Developing your electrical engineering degree thesis [Personal and Professional Growth]
TLDR
The main steps to correctly complete a DT are described, covering finding a place and a supervisor, to completing and presenting the final DT.
Literature programming – tool support for authoring and reviewing a scientific paper
TLDR
An analogy between the literature and the software is made to reuse software engineering tools for literature programming (writing/reviewing/studying) and the work has been applied to a recently published ICSE paper, showing a promising direction of software engineering-aided literature programming.
Tackling Technical Research
At the end of their studies, master's degree students can get very close to solving research problems, but sometimes they can be very easily discouraged, dropping the option to earn a Ph.D. degree.
Final year projects in electrical and information engineering: Tips for students and supervisors
Final year projects are often the final required step towards an engineering degree. Officially, they are only considered as one more subject that has to be passed. However, they play a key role in
How Power Electronics Engineers Should Write and Present Technical Papers in English
This paper describes techniques that Japanese power electronics engineers can use to improve the quality of their technical papers written in English and the accompanying technical presentations.
Integrating workforce communication into senior design
Workforce communication skills are essential to engineers' job success, but research shows that engineering graduates do not have the level of oral and written communication skills that jobs require.
Posters vs lectures A poster upbringing can visibly enhance your presentation skills at technical meetings C C
TLDR
In most cases, poster presenters need not prepare a short speech as part of their poster presentation; however, they are permitted to do so provided the “canned” speech is limited to five minutes.
