The results of a preliminary investigation into second year engineering students' attitude towards writing and the development of an integrated course is discussed. The results of the initial survey show that while engineering students acknowledge that writing is important, they do not prioritize it and they tend to see it as a secondary to real engineering work. They recognize that it is an important tool but do not believe that writing skills directly enhance engineering skills. Team-teaching integrated courses should continue to provide ground for exploring the relationship of writing to specific disciplines such as engineering.
