Abstract
Based on the surveys on the current situation of college English teaching in engineering undergraduate institutes in China, this paper tries to explore the reform roads of PETOE-based college English teaching. The suggestions are given from five aspects of adjusting teaching objectives, reconstructing a curriculum system, adopting effective teaching models, establishing a multidimensional teaching evaluation system and strengthening the construction of college English teaching staff. The reform will contribute to the improvement of college English teaching quality, the smooth implementation of PETOE and the achievement of the goal of training outstanding engineering talents. The study is a try to practice PETOE issued by the Ministry of Education, which regards developing the international engineering talents as one of its strategic priorities. It will establish a connection between English teaching and the higher engineering education in China, aiming to change the situation that the international competitiveness of the graduates is not strong with the English as the obstacle.
