This book has been designed to meet the needs of University students, who have an intermediate knowledge of English. It may also be used as a reference book for professionals. It has been the result of long teaching efforts at the Dept. of Civil Engineering at the University of West Attica. It will enable the readers to learn up – to – date technical terms, understand authentic texts, improve their communicative skills and write technical reports.

Technical English for Civil Engineers, Surveyors and Architects contains 18 units based on authentic text material provided with illustrations and diagrams. Emphasis is placed on reading and understanding which is checked through a variety of exercises and activities. Each unit begins with a reading passage that deals with building construction, architectural theory or surveying followed by comprehension questions on the passage, True/False statements and multiple choice exercises. The Language work which follows contains notes on particular points of grammar with exercises on those points. At the end of each unit there is terminology including words and terms referred to each unit.

The end of the book contains English-Greek Civil Engineering Technical Dictionary which provides students with adequate knowledge of the technical terms they will meet during their studies and profession.

This revised edition of the book intends to update the current needs of civil engineers, architects and surveyors.

We would finally like to acknowledge Paris Bitis Computer Engineer and John Bitis Civil Engineer for their valuable contribution and assistance.

A teacher’s key is also available.
