Our Engineering English course provides deep training on topics across many areas of the trade, whether civil, chemical, electrical, mechanical, petroleum, aviation or marine. With around 30 hours of online learning, spread over ten modules, you cover project design, materials, systems, forces, measurements, safety and quality management. You will develop and test your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills as well as finesse your grammar.
To get the most from this courses you need to ideally be B2 on the CEFR or level B on the CASAS scale. You should be able to listen and understand the main ideas of complex text and abstract topics, including technical discussion. You should be able to speak with a degree of fluency so you can interact with native speakers without any problems for either side. You should be able to write clearly on a wide range of subjects and give views on topical issues.
This course is designed for anyone who works in engineering, whether it’s mechanical, electrical or green. While you will likely recognise many of the product and technical terms, a good level of English (ideally B2 not he CEFR or B on CASAS) will ensure you get the most from this. As you develop your career, there will be a constant requirement to not only refresh and update existing technical learning but also to develop new skills and ways of thinking and behaving.
Whether you’re in engineering, production, distribution, sales, finance, human resources or management your technical skills will always need to keep up with the latest developments in technology and change. The learning for this will generally come from your peers, industry trends and specialised training.
However, as you move up in seniority through an organisation or become and entrepreneur, you will be faced with learning a much wider array of skills. You will need to learn how to be a generalist but with the ability to look at the whole of a business and how it all interlocks.
Most importantly, you will need to master your own behaviours and character and emotional intelligence in order to influence, inspire and bring people along with your vision. Your career, personal and professional development should never stop, whether you are learning because of a company or professional body requirement or whether you are just wanting to grow.
