    Abstract

    A syllabus is undoubtedly a vital aspect of a learning process. Activities done in the classroom in order to achieve certain goals are based on the syllabus. However, English syllabus for vocational higher education such as polytechnics is not provided by the government due to the unique nature of each institution. Therefore, designing a meaningful syllabus is expected to bring potential change to the teaching and learning of English at polytechnics.This case study aims to design an English syllabus for engineering students that matches the needs of students, lecturers, institution, and stakeholders of Banjarmasin State Polytechnic by consulting existing framework of didactic/pedagogical process of language syllabus design developed by Brown (2007) and Graves (1996). Data are gathered through students’ test, questionnaires, informal interviews and a survey. The research results in the formulation of goals for engineering students’ English subject. The result, formulation of goals for engineering students, is applicable to other institution with comparable situation. This topic of study is especially relevant to ESP teachers and curriculum/syllabus designers.
