A new analysis and development model has been designed to make the discussion about ‘integrated communication in engineering education’ more multifaceted. The model combines the two main principles of communication in education – communicate to learn and learning to communicate with a new dimension of how learning in communication is integrated in subject courses, passively or actively. The model can help education developer and teachers to increase different types of communication task of communication (e.g. direct and indirect communication, formal and informal communication in engineering education) in engineering programs.
