Learn how to Express your Profession in Common Language

Our English for engineering course is specifically created to provide practical and easily implementable content for professionals to use in their daily tasks. The course is ideal for engineering students, newly qualified engineers or highly experienced individuals wishing to refine their language and upskill.

On this course, individuals will acquire specific vocabulary used in engineering and develop the language skills needed to work with in this industry using English as the main language. The course content offers a holistic learning experience, covering both industry-specific areas as well as general business communication skills. The units cover topics common to all kinds of engineering, namely mechanical, civil, chemical, and electrical engineering.

While engineering makes use of extremely technical words, little attention is given to communication and language skills throughout formal training. By focusing on communication skills, our course will train engineers to communicate effectively and share ideas with colleagues. This will enable them to express the intricacies of their specialization in simple language while maintaining a professional level. In addition to everyday interactions, situations such as preparing for business meetings, delivering presentations, writing reports and describing technical processes.

Sessions are delivered in a communicative approach and make use of real-world case-studies for effective learning. Authentic activities, from describing technical problems and suggesting solutions to working with drawings, make the course relevant and motivating.

Suggested Topics:

  1. Materials and technology
  2. Engineering design
  3. Technical development
  4. Monitoring and control
  5. Performance and sustainability
  6. Tests and experiments

The suggested topics are a guideline, build your own course based on your needs.
