Resumen:
-Summary: English for Academic Reading and Writing is a mandatory course taken
by the three faculties at EPOKA university in Tirana, Albania. Its aim is
to equip students with the independent, analytical, and evaluative skills to
read sophisticated scientific literature in the genre, and to construct their
own scientific output be it a research paper or master/doctoral thesis. This
EAP course is built upon an assessment analysis of students’ needs per
each domain of study. This presentation will shed light on such needs as
manifested by two original types of research conducted with undergraduate
students of the Faculty of Architecture and Engineering published in Scopus/
Web of Science Journal (https://doi.org/10.22190/JTESAP2101109A)
and with the graduate students of economics, business
and political science programs at EPOKA University taught by
the author Dr. Mirela Alhasani during Covid-19 pandemic published in Routledge
(https://www.taylorfrancis.com/chapters/edit/10.4324/9781003283409-13/measuring-graduate-students-perceptions-academic-english-reading-writing-course-turbulent-times-case-study-albania-mirela-alhasani-dubali).

I will comment on the results of these two research works, where it is
evidenced that it turns an evitable co-joint collaboration between philologists
and language instructors and computer engineering/science scholars to come
out with student-friendly language programs where the two sides can benefit;
the engineering students can and need to improve their linguistic eloquence
and overall communication; meanwhile, the social science track needs to be
more exposed and trained in language technology programs to properly use it
to accomplish written records.
