The separation of theory and practice of hardware course is an important factor affecting students to improve their ability of solving complex engineering problems. A six-stage hardware practice course design method is proposed. From enterprise demand to project driven, the student’s ability and motivation of self-learning and self-improvement are inspired. Then we can drive practice by competition and further meet social needs by participating in various high-level competitions. The student-centered, teacher-guide is the core of hardware practice course teaching. The value of learning can be reflected by student’s self-created achievements and the ability of solving practical complex engineering problems can be improved.
