Abstract
The idea of emerging engineering education is currently accepted by many domestic universities which put forwards higher requirement for engineering cultivations. In this paper some existing problems in discipline construction and personnel cultivation have been presented and in order to fulfill this education ideology of student-centered and the aim of ability training for students majored in civil engineering in provincial university, it is necessary to evaluate the regional advantages, major characteristic as well as development planning. Some measurements and methods have correspondingly been suggested with the consideration of modern information technology, teaching reform, school-enterprise cooperation and professional accreditation whose purpose is to foster future engineers with composite ability in order to meet the need of social development. Engineering education accreditation could be looked as a reasonable path for major development of civil engineering under the tendency of emerging engineering education.
