Research on the Driving Force of Reform and CCDIO Engineering Education Mode

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 163)


Improving engineering education quality in China has no time to delay, especially higher vocational education. The planned number of new enrollments amounted to 6.75 million in 2011, the average college enrollment rate 72.3 %. In the past 10 years, higher vocational education has developed rapidly, but the quality of education and teaching is on the decline. The average graduates’ rate of matching profession post with specialty from 2007 to 2010 is 69.25 % from universities, 59.75 % from colleges. Career development is introduced into CDIO engineering education, the author presents CCDIO engineering education mode on the basis of CDIO. The vision of CCDIO is put forward, the four abilities aims include the ability to learn technical knowledge, personal professional skills and qualities, social adaptive capacity, integrated CDIO engineering capabilities. The system architecture of CCDIO engineering education includes survey research, personnel training scheme based on CCDIO, student career development system, curriculum system based on CCDIO, practice and training system based on CCDIO, quality assurance and evaluation system, teacher training system. The paper draws a conclusion that it is necessary to reform higher vocational education in China; CCDIO includes one vision, the four abilities aims and seven systems.
