There are two types of course:
Academic Writing for the Sciences and Engineering: 24 hours
The purpose of this course is to broaden students’ knowledge of the grammar, lexis and textual aspects of academic writing in the scientific context and to provide students with the tools to solve language problems on their own. During the course students are asked to produce a number of short texts which are revised after feedback from the course teacher.
Presentations for the Sciences and Engineering: 16 hours
The purpose of this course is to improve students’ ability to give presentations and to be clear, especially as regards pronunciation. During the course students practise giving presentations and asking and answering questions. Students receive feedback regarding the language used in their presentation and about how the information is presented.
Academic Writing II for the Sciences and Engineering: 24 hours
The purpose of this course is to revise and extend the various aspects of language and writing introduced during the Technical English and the Academic Writing for the Sciences and Engineering courses, and in this context to improve clarity of expression in the papers that course participants are writing for the Qualifying exam at DISI.
University PhD students of Mesiano and Povo.
The courses are free of charge.
During the year several cycles of courses are organised.
Students will be informed of the course start dates, timetables and enrolment dates by the secretary’s offices of their PhD schools.
