Outline (in English)

Modern engineers need strong communication skills to be successful in the global world. This course aims to improve graduate students' verbal English communication skills, especially writing skills, to thrive in the global engineering community. The course objective is to instruct students on structuring explicit, concise, and audience-directed texts. The 14-week course consists of lectures, writing projects, discussions, and presentations. Students learn skills in writing documents such as e-mail messages, PowerPoint presentations, CVs, and academic papers. Also, they will collaborate with their peers to critique the assigned writing tasks. The final goal of this course is to write an English abstract of their research. Before writing their abstracts, students will read English academic articles related to their specializations. They will review the content and make presentations about their chosen articles to familiarize themselves with common phrases and expressions applicable to their writings. Students will make their final presentations on their abstracts.
