Sally Runions earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering at Colorado State University with a minor in Spanish in 2015. After a year of part time work she returned to CSU to pursue an M.S. in Public Communication and Technologies. She aims to combine her technical background with her love for communication and focus on technical writing, specifically relating to machinery, electronics, and new technologies in engineering fields. During her time in the M.S. program, she means to research concepts related to: connotations engineers associate with terms such as “writing” and “communication”, as well as how to reframe communication as taught to engineers. Sally currently means to pursue a career as a technical writer after graduation, eventually moving into a teaching role at some point in the future.
