Engineering Guide: Technology and Digital Skills

Tech skills: Word and Excel

You may already be familiar with Microsoft Office products like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint (or similar services like Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides) from your work or previous study. However, you may not know all of the features you will be expected to use during your engineering degree.

Use Microsoft Office products on any student computer on campus, or download Office 365 for your own computer for free through Student Portal (more information here).

Resources to improve your skills and understand what features may be useful to you can be found in the tip sheets below. You also have access to training courses through LinkedIn Learning while you're a student. Log in at the link below (use your student email address) or through the Useful Links section in Student Portal.
