Course Syllabus

Abstract

“English for Specific Purposes. Electronic and Computer Engineering -3” is a course designed to teach you how to use English in your professional field. It can be useful, if you want to communicate to potential employers, co-workers, partners or clients. Advanced English communication can also help you achieve your academic goals: take other courses in English at home or study abroad in the future. The course gives you an overview of terminology within a variety of topics: engineering, mathematical analysis, statistics, physics and electronics, machine learning, etc. By the end of this course, you will be able to read professional literature in English, understand lectures and talks on professional topics, work with technical documentation in English, present your knowledge and yourself at a group case interview, speak about the main tools and processes in electronic and computer engineering, communicate with your colleagues and classmates about your professional interests. The course is highly recommended for students who aim to pursue a career in electronic and computer engineering or conduct research within this field or other related fields, such as software development, net development, hardware engineering, machine learning engineering, big data engineering, data analysis, etc.

Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • non-blocking Written assessment
    Written assessment is conducted in the classroom and cannot be part of homework. Written assessment includes three written assignments: one review of an article, one review of a video-lecture or an interview and one motivation letter. The elements of written assessment cannot be retaken.
  • non-blocking Oral assessment
    Oral assessment is conducted in the classroom and cannot be part of homework. Oral assessment includes a presentation with a Q&A session, a group case interview and a pronunciation test on commonly mispronounced words and phrases. The elements of oral assessment cannot be retaken.
  • non-blocking Independent work
    Independent work includes home assignments and tests. Home assignments are assessed as follows: 1 point – the student has submitted all the home assignments before the deadline. 0 points - not all the tasks have been submitted or the student has missed the deadline. The sum of all points students have received is converted into the 10-point grading scale proportionally. Vocabulary and grammar tests are conducted in the test simulator in Smart LMS. Students have three attempts to complete the test, and the best test result is considered to be his/her score for the test. Each vocabulary and grammar test contains 20 vocabulary and 20 grammar questions. The test must be completed in 30 minutes. For each correct answer the student gets 0.25 points and the maximum for a test is 10 points. The final score for vocabulary and grammar tests is the mean of seven tests. The elements of independent work cannot be retaken.
  • non-blocking Final Test
    The final test is held in class within more than 10 days before the exam period. The final test includes one written assignment (a video-lecture review). The final test can be retaken if a student missed it for a valid reason. The absence must be documented (e.g. doctor’s confirmation).
