Abstract: In recent years, the higher education system of our country has had many positive changes, but on the whole, the higher education of our country, especially the engineering education is incommensurate with the needs of economic development, the technical personnel can not meet the requirements of modern enterprises. In this article, the engineering training strategy with engineering education is researched and reformed from making a scientific training plan to enhance the quality of the talent, improving the curriculum and optimize the course structure, setting the training courses of engineering capabilities, attaching importance to experimental teaching, and enhancing the practical training, expanding the content of practice, strengthening professional awareness, creating opportunities for extracurricular activities, strengthening practical teaching link, and so on.
Abstract: Engineering education has been a very important branch of Chinese national education and an indispensable part of Chinese national strategy aiming at enforcing the comprehensive national strength. By referring to the Tao, we attempt to argue that engineering education should proceed by its own nature, evolve through establishing certain harmonious relationships and maintain dynamic sources for its development and prosperity. The Tao is mysterious but it provides us a particular angle to consider and evaluate the nature and significance of engineering education. It relates to society, university, engineering students, etc. and unconsciously has effects upon its associated “beings”. Thus, we should know that in the globalized world, engineering education ought to make an adjustment in knowledge absorbing so as to realize the “knowledge recombination” from only academic studies to multiple participations of all required engineering communications.
Abstract: Cultivating students who have innovated abilities is not only an age requirement but also the focus of engineering education. In engineering education, according to the studies and practices for a very long time, this article establish "three-dimension" innovation talents development model which can improve students’ abilities of self-study and help them fit the society better after their graduation. The seven aspects are teaching method, learning approach, teaching material constructs, auxiliary answering strategy, teaching evaluation, students develop environment and innovation channels. “Three-dimensional” innovation talents development model is designed according to students’ character and their best innovation study result .And it can actually form a three-dimensional layered training model includes “General-form Teaching”, “Extensions Expand” and “Elites Cultivating”. The effect of the practice of "three-dimensional" innovation talents development model is very obvious.

Abstract: In our country, the training target and cultivation mode of mechanical engineering in universities seems to akin to each other. Besides that, undergraduate students have their own limitations in knowledge, cognitive performance and thinking model. Aiming at that fact, we have set up “an educational mode of multi-level cooperation to personalized cultivate mechanical engineers’ innovation quality” and implemented that effectively through a long time of research and exploration. Furthermore, we have gradually formed a comparative impeccable personalized educational mode in the aspects of training target, talents training scheme, course system, educational mode, teaching evaluation and then constructed a smooth personalized cultivation and management mechanism, personalized training level and teaching contents focusing on the whole progress of education, flexible teaching method and advanced teaching means, a high quality teaching team with composite construction, showing a unique individualized teaching style and personalized teaching quality. We have achieved obvious teaching benefits, educational benefits and social benefits on comprehensively prompting quality-oriented education, especially on the cultivation of ability of innovating, learning and practicing. All these efforts to improve the cultivation quality of innovative talents major in mechanical engineering at universities have been widely recognized by our society.
