The background of this paper is the education reformation of Chinese software engineering. Using graduate education of Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (BUAA) as an example, we will demonstrate the development of Software Engineering training curriculum based on the job position of a company. Firstly, we analyze the relationship between the occupational goal and the ability needed; secondly, we set the goal of talent cultivation based on occupational ability needed; lastly, we construct cultivating system based vocational ability. In conclusion, we should improve the managing system of practical education and the mechanism should focus on constructing occupational abilities of students that various companies require.
