Language and Communicaton

The Division for Language ​​and Communication engages in teaching and research in technical communication and scientific writing, and the relationship between communication and learning.

The division is active in Chalmers undergraduate, masters, and postgraduate education and also provides assignments and courses for teachers and researchers. The division’s education assignments at Chalmers include courses and integrated subject-based communication activities in academic and technical writing and various forms of technical and scientific communication. Central to the division’s work is for courses and activities, which are conducted in Swedish and English, to be developed, as far as possible, in cooperation with discipline representatives and program managers in order to best support the discipline-specific writing and learning.

​The division also houses Chalmers Writing Centre (CWC) where students can book writing tutorials with trained peer tutors. CWC is available on both Chalmers campuses and supervision is provided in Swedish and English. Students can also book a time at CWC to, for example, practice or help prepare an oral presentation.
