As an important measure to deepen the reform of higher engineering education and an upgraded version of the outstanding engineers plan, the construction of emerging engineering education has been put forward to meet the severe challenges brought by the new economic reform based on the Washington Accord. In view of the main problems existing in higher engineering education, it is imperative to return engineering education to engineering itself, which is also the core concept of the construction of emerging engineering education. The construction of emerging engineering education is a systematic project, and some new requirements for the cultivation of engineering talents have been presented in terms of conception, system, innovation, practice and transboundary. To fulfill these new requirements, more attention should be paid to the cultivation of engineering consciousness and the shaping of craftsman spirit from the perspective of the educational concept of large-scale engineering. Taking civil engineering majors as an example, to cultivate the engineering consciousness and build the craftsman spirit of students in the specific training links systematically is the key to improve the cultivation quality of engineering talents in an all-round way.

Key words: emerging engineering, engineering education, engineering consciousness, craftsman spirit, engineering ethics, civil engineering
