English has become one of the global languages. It has great importance everywhere in education, business and in everyday interactions. Because of the global status of English its teaching should be accordingly to its use in daily life. Many methodologies of teaching English have been implemented but one of the modern methodoly is communicative language teaching (CLT). It is one of the strategies that are very much beneficial for teaching English communicatively. CLT is implemented in EFL/ESL and also in ESP courses. In Pakistan, still GTM (grammar translation method) is implemented, CLT is not been used because traditional methodologies are easy to apply in the classroom. The aim of this research is to find out basic needs and lacking’s in our universities of Pakistan in teaching ESP in engineering context. This paper is also aimed to assess the needs of CLT in the engineering context.  In order to get the result, mixed questionnaire of multiple option questions are used as an instrument of the data collection. 12 questions are asked to know the student’s perception of CLT teaching. Only students have been taken as the participant of the study. 130 students from the Quest University Nawabshah have been selected from the different departments to achieve goal of assessing students’ belief’s and attitudes towards CLT.
