Abstract

Communication is the universal attribute in human beings, its first trait being the exchange of information within. Language is the most common means of communication. The commanding status of English as a global language cannot be denied. English is the most frequently and extensively used language for business communication worldwide. A maximum part of the important content of the internet is in English though it facilitates translation options. A large part of important books pertaining to various disciplines, particularly science and technology are primarily published in English. In the engineering context, the professional world today essentiates the technocrats to be proficient in English. The last two decades have been the decades of globalization, because of the growing international commerce, financial and technological breakthroughs. The flux of innovations has united the issues or problems making the ones which were local, now becoming global. The technology world faces and is expected to deal with various issues at the global platform like cybercrime, identity theft, E-Banking Fraud, etc. In developing countries with the dominance of vernacular mother tongue, the usage of English is limited in students, this creates a gap in employability skills and hence creates a significant impediment in the hiring process of engineers with satisfactory technical skills. The futuristic technologies per se Artificial intelligence, 3D printing, blockchain, cloud computing, augmented and virtual reality, robotics and the like are driving us towards one world. Such a large-scale validation of English language could substantiate positive outcomes of grave issues on a multidimensional global scale and hence could further lead to unity of the world community, a true one world, which we often dream of.
