This textbook is a revised edition of the former course
books Engelsk for Teknisk Fagskole 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.
Olav Talberg was Associate Professor of English at Oslo
University College and taught English at the Faculty of
Engineering until his retirement in 2010. He has written
several course books and teaching materials, in English, for
vocational, technical and engineering studies.
