Abstrakt EN: The development of information and communication technologies (ICT) in recent years has massively affected language education at all levels, tertiary education being no exception. The aim of this paper is to present two e-learning courses of English for technical purposes created within the framework of Inova, the mutual project of the Institute of Applied Language Studies and its partners in the Pilsen region. The two LMS-based courses were specially tailored to the needs of part-time post-graduate students of electrical engineering at the B1/B2 level of CEFR. Based on a careful needs analysis, the courses were divided into 12 modules, covering both technical and business topics the students would be likely to encounter in their future careers. The piloting stage of the project proved the courses to be effective, positively influencing the students´ command of the language. However, possible future improvements might include finding ways to extend the proportion of speaking within the modules.
