Kommunikationsträning i civilingenjörsprogrammen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceedingpeer-review


At the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, two of the engineering programmes have decided to strengthen and systematise the students’ communication training during the curriculum. The project addresses two different levels: the engineering teachers of the programme are offered further education while the programme managers are responsible for the progression during the curriculum. The teachers experience that engineering students need to practice writing. They recognise the importance of communication training, but difficulties in finding time for implementation. One of the teachers’ problems is to convince the students about the relevance of communication training. Another challenge is to provide the students with constructive feedback. The article argues that teachers of engineering can successfully conduct communication training, but also emphasises that organisational support is essential.
