The development of information technology is of great benefit to modern education. Taking the heat transfer curriculum for example, which is a professional and foundational curriculum for building environment and equipment engineering speciality in our college, the results about the study of questionnaire on college bilingual teaching which is carried out both in English and Chinese for Chinese students were presented in this paper. Based on the outcome of 150 effective questionnaires for our bilingual teaching effect of heat transfer curriculum, the situation and common problems about the bilingual teaching of heat transfer curriculum were analyzed in this paper. And some proposes about bilingual teaching methods, such as promoting the development of distance education, were presented so as to improve the bilingual teaching level of college engineering science specialties.
