About The Book

This book "Functional English for Technical Students" satisfies the requirements of the new RTMNU syllabus for teaching Functional English-the English that the Technical students are required to use for employability. The present syllabus caters to the needs of the outgoing engineering students who either face the interviews for employment or sit in various competitive examinations for higher studies. Here, the students are expected to have learnt good number of vocabulary and also have strong knowledge of grammar to crack GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, and IELTS or even compete in UPSC, IES examinations.

As part of the selection process, students are often required to take a written test in English that measures their proficiency in language. Keeping the recent changes in mind-the changes that the examination pattern of CAT and UPSC examinations have undergone-the first two units have been written. Thus, Unit 1 and Unit 2 of the book comprise the grammar portion and the vocabulary. Unit 3 prepares the students for Analytical Reading and Comprehension test. This Unit has five fictional passages and five non-fictional passages for comprehension to help.students learn by practicing them.

Unit 4 is regarding Formal Correspondence-the kind of correspondence one deals with in Professional life everyday. The exercises at the end of each unit have been carefully graded and sequenced so that even the average students enhance their knowledge at a comfortable pace. Unit 5 consists of Technical and Scientific Writing. This Unit will guide the students to write technical reports, project proposals and research proposals.
