Technical writing holds immense importance in the field of software engineering because in order to write the conceptual overviews, procedures, reading and writing example codes, proposals, a sound knowledge of technical writing is required. In order to provide a greater link between technical writing and software engineering, I performed an interview of Mor Harchol- Balter who is a Professor of Computer Science and provides a closer look at the use of technical writing in the field of software engineering.
Mor Harchol- Balter, a Professor of Computer Science at the Carnegie Mellon University, received her doctorate from the Computer Science department at the University of California at Berkeley in 1996. Following this, she spent three years in MIT under the NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences. She has not only received multiple best paper awards but also numerous teaching awards as well. She is currently serving as the Associate Department Head for Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.
On Wednesday April 15, 2015, at 2:30 PM, a formal request was sent to Dr. Mor Harchol- Balter coupled with a sample of 10 interview questions which were to be covered during the interview. The formal request was sent via email. Dr. Mor Harchol- Balter responded to the formal invite at 5:45 PM on April 17, 2015. Her response included a time and date for the interview. The interview took place at the EUSES lab at the Oregon State University, on April 19, 2015 starting at 10:00 AM and ending at 10:30 AM. Over a period of 30 minutes, we discussed her current writings, her goal and also her previous experiences. Dr. Balter also showed a sample document. However, since the sample being a project proposal was not permitted by Dr.Balter to be reproduced or copied, the sample was analyzed and a similar sample was attached in Appendix B. An email thanking Dr. Balter was sent after the

The accomplishments of the project were in enabling the robotic arm to move through a space within set constraints of avoiding the black lines in the experiment. The software for the robotic arm is executed by the machine to achieve the objectives of the project.
An organization whose members are satisfied with the way that communication is carried out at their workplace are generally better informed of what their organization desires of them, hence they usually perform much better as compared to those
Generally, as far as this experiment was concerned, three theory equations were applied. These were (1) ,
Most components used in the current world, are characterized by a shear stress often induced in them when a torque is applied (Hearn,
For the first cycle, the mass of the water alone is the mass of the crucible lid and hydrate, less the mass of the crucible lid and residue after heating. That gives 22.678 – 22.460 = 0.218. The mass of the hydrated salt is the mass of the crucible lid and hydrated salt, less
Thus, the experimental acceleration at a distance of 3 meters = (1/2)a (2.24)2 where a=1.20 m/s2 (That is Xf= (1/2) ax t2)
As discussed earlier, the theoretical acceleration obtained was 1.12 m/s2 while the experimental acceleration was
