Advance technical communications skills when speaking, reading, and writing English.
English has become the international language of science. As technology advances globally, engineers must enter the workplace with the ability to communicate across national and cultural boundaries. English is the vehicle for those advancing technology today.
Technical students and faculty who speak English as a second language may experience difficulty understanding, speaking, reading, or writing on technical topics in English. This can affect collaboration, instruction, getting published, and ultimately one?s success. IEEE has partnered with Cambridge University Press to provide an interactive program of engaging online English instruction to address this need.
Develop English skills in four areas
Speaking in technical English
Listening and comprehension
Reading and understanding technical publications
