Dehydration of an alcohol has what major project?

This is what I think, does this make sense to anyone?

The major project of dehydration of an alcohol is that alcohol loses a water molecule. An H- and -OH are removed from the adjacent carbon atoms of the same alcohol and end up producing a water molecule. THe result of this is a double bond is formed between the same two caron atoms to produce an alkene product.
