The construction of new engineering has proposed new and higher demands for engineering talented people, yet the acute problem is that basic knowledge in English for Specific Purposes (ESP) has obtained too much attention while the professional knowledge of the engineering courses has not been given sufficient attention. Other questions such as a limited cultivation in English language ability, a backward teaching mode in ESP learning, ineffective teaching effect, a single teaching evaluation mechanism are also hindering the training of talented people. Under new engineering background, it is highly urgent to adopt new mode of the cooperative cultivation of students especially new engineering plus ESP by strengthening cultivation scheme, curriculum system, teaching resources, and supporting platform among others. That can help to cultivate the comprehensive engineering talented people with a solid knowledge foundation, technology ability, higher ESP ability, cross-cultural ability, as well as humanistic presence.
