Overview The goal of the language and communication programs in the School of Engineering is to provide engineers with the communication skills they need to become and remain competitive. Because English is used so extensively in science and international business, the English program aims to build comprehensive language competence by developing the key skills - listening, speaking, reading, and writing - in a rounded way.
Our goal is to enable students to work with English-language materials and to interact with colleagues, customers and scientific peers in both formal and informal contexts, ranging from small talk and casual written correspondence to presentations and technical reports.
The Developing English modules are designed to improve students’ general English skills in order to help them to communicate more confidently and more effectively.
Learning objectives Developing English is a two-level English course which covers general and academic English and develops knowledge and skills that students need to learn and succeed in a globalized world.
