Abstract
Since the beginning of China's engineering education accreditation, especially after China's accession to the Washington Agreement, the ability to solve complex engineering problems has become the basic orientation of undergraduate engineering education. This paper analyzed the basic requirements of professional education from the definition of complex engineering problems, recovered that we must use deep engineering principles and system concept to solve them. This article discussed the teaching content selection from the theory and practice, the activities implementation and the evaluation standard. It gave the way to cultivate students' ability to solve complex engineering problems, and showed the process to promote the realization of international equivalence of our undergraduate engineering education. This paper makes a useful exploration to improve the students' ability to solve complex engineering problems in the undergraduate education of other subjects.
