From the strategic perspective of adapting to the development of economy in the new era, the Chinese Ministry of Education has recently proposed a new concept of "Emerging Engineering Disciplines", aiming to strengthen and deepen the reform and innovation of Chinese higher engineering education. The implementation of university-enterprise cooperative education to enhance students’ innovative abilities is one of the focuses of that. With the new concept, this paper gives an account of a case study conducted at Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) to investigate the implementation plan of cooperative education between universities and enterprises. The university-enterprise cooperative education mode was introduced in the context of emerging trends in engineering. In this mode, universities and enterprises cooperate to formulate cultivation program, construct a practice training system and an open teaching system, trying to emerge the mechanisms of integrating social resources, a project-driven training, and a participation in entire industry process.
