- In recent decades, English discipline in Chinese universities and colleges has achieved a remarkable development. This paper investigated how students in China’s universities of science and engineering (USE) oriented the English discipline. The study intended to compare and analyze the similarities and differences between students of different majors in USE in the aspects of disciplinary orientation, research content of discipline, cultivating mode and disciplinary construction. According to the results, educators and students of English majors should learn about the academic connotation of English discipline, and attach the same importance to both skills and academics, both teaching and research for the progress of English discipline in USE. On the one hand, the English discipline could rely on the prominent disciplines of its university; on the other hand, it should orient its direction without losing its value and cultivate interdisciplinary talents with international vision.
