Copy-editing for an undergraduate student

The genealogy is on hold at the moment, as I have been asked to copy-edit an undergraduate’s dissertation. This will require some degree of urgency and application to meet the deadline, but it will be completed, on that my client may depend. For the past three years he has been studying civil engineering, a subject about which I know nothing. This is not the problem some might think, as the brief is to run my eye over the grammar, style and clarity of the piece – I certainly won’t be tempted to meddle with the content!
