Abstract
In order to build the characteristic specialty of “mechanical design, manufacturing and automation” in Zhengzhou University of Light Industry a Chinese first-class major, based on the valuable experience in some American universities, the ABET (American engineering and technology certification commission) certification standards are used to improve the teaching level of the course. Firstly, the ABET certification standards are described, and compared with the general engineering education certification standards in China. And then, some improved teaching theories and practices of the specialty have been proposed to achieve the course goals more guaranteed, which include making clear course objectives and strict implementing steps, choosing specialty core courses, strengthening teaching process management, performing a third-party appraisal of teaching process, changing the evaluation method of courses teaching, etc. Finally, the effect of implementation is summarized. The idea of the paper can provide some beneficial references for similar specialty to improve the course teaching level and pass the ABET certification.
