This course aims to introduce students to the main characteristics of oral and written communication in the field of engineering. The main objectives of the course are to help students improve their linguistic competence in English and to provide them with the necessary resources for effective oral and written communication in an academic and professional setting. Throughout the course, students will practise writing and oral presentation skills in English by developing and presenting a project related to their specific field of engineering. This project, called course project, will be presented in a written format and in a group oral presentation at the end of the course. The course will cover the following areas: • Techniques and strategies for oral and written communication in academic and professional settings. • Practice on oral and written communications skills through a variety of engineering documents. • Practice on the rhetoric of professional and academic documents in engineering. • Practice on the writing and oral presentation of documents in engineering. • Introduction to the collaborative writing of projects. Course level: • At the end of the course, students will reach a mid-intermediate level (B1 - B2) of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR). • At the beginning of the course, students will take an “Online Placement Test” to test their English level.
