Abstract: This study was conducted to evaluate and compare the level of English proficiency of Tourism and Engineering students in two Asian universities and to examinee how certain factors affect their proficiency in the language. The descriptive technique was applied in this study. Statistical analyses were done using mean, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), Turkey’s HSD and correlation coefficient. The correlation performed between English proficiency of the respondents and the other variables yielded different results prompting different decisions on hypothesis 1. Hypothesis 2 is rejected. There exists a significant difference between the English proficiency of Tourism and Engineering students. Engineering students of university A have mean scores in English proficiency significantly different or higher than Tourism students of university A and the Engineering and Tourism students of university B.
