Innovation Ability Training Mode of Postgraduates in the Mechanical Discipline Based on Simulation Technology

Xueyi Li, Lirong Wan, Xin Zhang


The innovation ability of mechanical discipline graduate students in China is trained mainly through classroom teaching and scientific research. Theoretical knowledge is traditionally passed on to students in class by “spoon-feeding,” which makes the learning process boring. Scientific research combines theoretical knowledge with experiment. However, its experimental condition and experimental equipment requirements are high. The experimental resources in many universities can hardly satisfy the requirements, seriously hindering the cultivation of the innovation ability of postgraduates. Therefore, this study proposes a new approach to enhancing the innovation ability of postgraduates in the mechanical discipline based on simulation technology, describes the positive role of simulation technology in the training process, and takes the wavy lip seal as an example to illustrate the application of simulation technology in enhancing innovation ability in detail. The comparison of the traditional and new training modes shows that the innovation ability of postgraduates in the mechanical discipline improves considerably when the new training mode is adopted. Furthermore, the new training mode is recognized by graduate students and enterprises.
