About the Book

Language, unlike other engineering subjects, is more a skill that has to be practiced constantly. With this in mind, English for Engineering Students has been written to help building engineers use technical English appropriately in all situations. The objective of this book is to facilitate the practice of the four major study skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing) along with their sub-skills. The book is divided into 4 units of 3 chapters each. Each unit is accompanied by a revision exercise. At the end of the book are the supplementary tasks along with keys, an appendix of phonetic symbols and their use, and a model question paper.
