English for Engineers & Technologists is in two volumes and has been written by teachers. It has been produced by the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Anna University and is a British Council-aided project. The writing of the book was supervised by three specialists from the Ealing College of Higher Education, London. The contents of the books are based on eight ‘real-life’ topics which are interesting and relevant to engineering/technical students. Each unit is in turn divided into three sub-topics (eg. the “Resources” unit has ‘water’, ‘gold’ and ‘human resources’). The exercises in each of the lesson units are aimed at developing in the students, skills in listening, discussion, reading, writing and presentation.
