and ACCESS English for Engineers
. This revised edition is designed to meet the curriculum requirements for both Teknisk Fagskole and Kommunikasjon og norsk, and the access course for engineering studies in Norway.
The wide selection of texts and exercises gives the students an opportunity to draw on their vocational training and work experience, while developing an extensive, relevant vocabulary and improved communication skills. All major engineering areas are represented, and an entire chapter is dedicated to communication and cultural knowledge. This textbook is also suitable for engineering students and engineers who need to improve their English proficiency.
