Nowadays, the experts in various fields of technology are on a high demand. It comes without doubt, that their skills can be better disseminated via their good language competence – the higher the language competence the better. One of the ways to ensure a quality training of future professionals at engineering universities for being prepared to operate industry or business sector is to support the language training by ICT and project work. The paper is focused on making familiar with ICT implementation and the activities related to two projects at Slovak University of Technology, faculty of Materials Science and Technology, mainly in the fields of the English language and the study programmesat the Institute of Applied Informatics, Automation and Mechatronics and the Institute of Production Technologies. regarding the English practitioners, and due to excellent interdisciplinary cooperation with the aforementioned Institutes, the students have been involved in two specific projects utilising technologies, one of them concerning the developing of online conferencing skills in the project titled as "Student online conferences of STU MTF (Slovakia) and Univesrity of Niš, Faculty of Electronic Engineering (Serbia) for the purposes of English language and other skills development" and the other one on  boosting the vocabulary background within their study programme. regarding the latter, the paper is aimed at looking closer at the prepared multimedia textbook within the project "University textbook: The means of autoimated production by interactive multimedia formats for the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava and Technical University in Košice".
