English is the primary international language of naval architecture both in scientific research and the working environment.

In the light of this, the degree course ('Laurea Triennale') in Naval Architecture establishes B1+ of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) as the minimum level of competence in English as a foreign language

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course's principal objective is to raise students' awareness of the importance of increasing their communication skills in English by not only using sector-specific content but crucially by exploiting the knowledge and competences acquired during their degree courses.  

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Main objectives:
- Improve productive skills using existing receptive skills as input;
- Raise awareness of function, structure and organisation in naval architecture texts for writing
- Prepare the skills needed to obtain a recognised ESOL certificate at B1+ level.
