Critical Thinking, Writing & Communications
Engineering students admitted in AY2017 are required to read ES1531 Critical Thinking & Writing module offered by the Centre for English Language Communication (CELC). Students should refer to the department recommended study plan for taking this module. ES1531 addresses the need to develop critical thinking and writing skills which will enable engineering students to ask good questions, think & reason well and be able to convince others when they practise their profession. Students for whom ES1531 is part of their Department’s recommended schedule this semester and are eligible to read ES1531, will be pre‐allocated this module. ES1531 is a pre‐requisite for EG2401 Engineering Professionalism.
Good performance in the writing & communications modules (i.e., ES1531, ES2331 and/or ES1501X) is an indicator of the ability of students to communicate well and this would be an important factor in the selection of students for special programmes including the Student Exchange Programme (SEP).
Students in Computer Engineering (CEG), University Scholars Program (USP) and University Town Residential Program (UTRP) should refer to the respective program website for details on their Writing and Communications module requirement (to be taken in lieu of the Faculty of Engineering’s Writing and Communications modules).
