The construction of new engineering is the transformation of engineering education for the fourth industrial revolution. It is an effective carrier and motivation for higher engineering education and a major opportunity for the transformation and development of local universities. After more than ten years of practice and development in China, the CDIO engineering education model has become an important means of advancing domestic advanced engineering education reform. It has been widely praised by parties involved in engineering education reform. It also has provided some meaningful references for the exploration and practice of new engineering construction. This meeting elaborated the new connotation of the CDIO under the background of the new engineering and confirmed the new task of the CDIO in the construction of new engineering.
