The Technical Matrix is a textbook for engineering students. It features a unique combination of core skills suitable for all types of engineers and separate strands for the major disciplines of civil engineering/architecture, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer & network engineering, and chemical and material engineering.

In the core skills sections, the students learn important common language and engage in projects to be able to deal with their field in English such as preparing a job application, reading scientific papers, and writing a scientific paper and making presentions.

In the specialized strands, students get practice reading authentic up-to-date information from their own fields in the form of natural email exchanges, reading and conversations. Each unit features vocabulary tasks to internalize the vocabulary of their own discipline, comprehension tasks to help them understand the texts, and language tasks to ensure that they can use the language in their own writing and conversation.
