Course description

Each Academic Fundamentals class (A-D) focuses on a specific subfield of science and engineering (for example, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Technology, etc.), and reviews and builds on the concepts which students have studied in high school. We will focus on the English skills and knowledge required to understand lectures and readings on the fundamental concepts of the subject.
