Chemical Engineering Design is one of the core curriculums to cultivate the innovation and engineering ability of college students. Through the study of this course, students can be familiar with the principles, methods, contents and procedures of chemical engineering design, acquire the basic knowledge and methods of chemical engineering design systematically, and be familiar with the compilation of design documents. It is an important curriculum to improve comprehensive quality of college student. Chemical Engineering Design is an important teaching link to convert the college students into engineer. To cultivate students’ ability to analyze and solve practical engineering problems with the knowledge they have acquired, to cultivate students’ correct design ideas and realistic spirit, and to be responsible for the coordination and innovation of their work style, to enhance students’ engineering concepts, engineering thinking and technical and economic awareness, so that students have the basic quality of chemical engineer. Methods of teaching reform are discussed in this paper, from the aspects of increase practical teaching courses, the application of computers and chemical engineering design software, in order to abutment the requirement of enterprise and industry under the background of Emerging Engineering Education construction in application-oriented university and dissolve the problems in Chemical Engineering Design teaching.
