Reform of Training Ways of Engineering Practice and Innovation Ability for Petroleum Engineering Students

Mingxing BAI, Jiangpeng SUN, Kaoping SONG, Wanli ZOU


To improve the students’ ability of engineering practice and innovation, Petroleum Engineering Experiment Teaching Center reformed the training ways, including construction of two-way practice teaching system, reform of the experimental teaching organization and management mode, experimental teaching mode, experimental teaching contents, experimental teaching assessment methods, form and content of college students’ extracurricular scientific activities, etc.. These help to form the good situation of independent learning and independent experiments, training students’ engineering capability and innovative capability, which have achieved fruitful results in practice.
