Sažetak
Due to the globalization process and hence the increased mobility of professionals, the English language has become the main language of communication for engineers. Accordingly, engineering education has to stand up to the challenge of preparing new professionals with outstanding English language skills. The paper discusses the role of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) in engineering education which focuses the learner’s attention on the particular terminology, grammar as well as communication skills required in a particular professional field. Furthermore, the authors conducted a questionnaire among undergraduate students at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Osijek, Croatia, with the aim of researching students’ attitudes towards learning a foreign language and their motivation for learning ESP, as well as to find out which of the four skills of language learning students believe are most important and/or most efficient in their respective fields of study. The results of the student questionnaire will be used for the purpose of improving the ESP course at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Osijek.
