Inspired by the excellent engineer training program proposed by the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China, practical teaching in chemical engineering has been paid more and more attention in recent years. As a subject with strong engineering and application, Environmental Engineering requires students of this major to have certain practical operation ability, engineering design and management ability. Have a solid grasp of the basic theory, basic knowledge and basic skills of chemistry and chemical engineering, and have a certain preliminary ability to design and simulate the production process and equipment. In order to achieve this training goal, it is very important to cultivate students' experimental ability. Arrange different types of practical training projects, such as basic experiment, comprehensive experiment, self designed experiment, innovative experiment, self design of simple equipment and disassembly experiment of chemical pipeline, to effectively improve students' practical ability. Through the chemical design competition, students' engineering ability has been trained and improved. At the same time, relying on the chemical design competition, actively promote the reform of teaching content and teaching methods, strengthen the infiltration and connection between disciplines, strengthen practical teaching, and promote the cultivation of students' engineering ability. During the integration period of engineering certification and new engineering construction, the students trained by engineering majors should not only have the ability to identify, analyze, design, develop, research, communicate and cooperate in the process of solving complex engineering problems, but also have the ability to innovate in scientific research.
