Abstract
As the world has entered the Internet information era of globalization, the continuous update of media technology, the rapid development of mass media and the huge influence generated are unprecedented. This paper conducts a survey on students from three science and engineering universities in Chengdu, mainly focusing on their media consumption behavior, media literacy cognition, media critical ability, and media active participation. The survey results show that the media consumption ability of students of science and engineering universities in Chengdu is relatively strong, among which the degree of dependence on mobile phone network is quite high, and the activity degree in social network is high. Although most students have the consciousness of media criticism, they have the problems of inability to analyze news events in depth, weak independent thinking, vague cognition of media literacy, and weak media application ability, etc.
