The first purposes of this study was to investigate the needs of language and communication capability for electrical engineering department students at the Higher Technological and Vocational Education System in their future working field, and the second purpose was to establish their basic indicators and assessment model by the concept of human resources. Six experts, including trade bosses and high-level technologists of the electrical engineering field, and professors of educational institutions with language backgrounds were invited to discuss required verbal and communication capabilities and emphasize listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The first objective of the study was curriculum development, teaching implementation and the standard of assessment as the principle of the Higher Technological and Vocational Education System, and the other objective of the study was to transform the basic competencies and the indicators into the curriculum. We hope this study becomes a reference to set up the research and development center for the Higher Technological and Vocational Education System in the electrical engineering department, and the standard of language and communication models for all engineering fields as employment, salary, in-service training, vocational education and general education.
