dc.description.abstract Increasing numbers of non-native English speakers (NNES) are studying at English-medium universities. This increase of students has stimulated the need for EAP instruction, so students can become competent in the discourse conventions of their chosen academic community. The purpose of this research was to carry out a needs analysis (NA) of a 1st year Engineering programme at an English-medium university. A case study approach was used to gain a deeper understanding of the writing requirements of 1st year Engineers and to influence teaching and learning within the School of Engineering (SOE). The methodology used to carry out the NA included genre analysis of institutional artefacts, and interviews and focus groups with faculty and students. ru_RU
