Abstract: [Objective] “Mechatronics Integration” is an important basic course in the field of mechanical and electronic engineering, and an important carrier for cultivating the innovative ability of students in the field of mechanical and electronic engineering. It is necessary to continuously explore and improve teaching models, explore new teaching concepts and techniques, and enhance teaching effectiveness to better enhance students’ engineering innovation ability. [Method] According to the characteristics of mechanical and electronic engineering, the teaching mode of “Mechatronics Integration” course was proposed to change from “theory teaching as the main and practice teaching as the auxiliary” to “theory teaching, practice teaching and engineering teaching are mutually supported”, and the three stages of theory teaching, practice teaching and engineering teaching were analyzed from the aspects of teaching objectives, teaching content and teaching mode. The theoretical teaching should focus on the integrity of knowledge structure. The practical teaching can deepen the understanding of theoretical knowledge. The engineering teaching should focus on the ability to analyze problems and flexibly apply knowledge. The mode of combining engineering case method and engineering project teaching should be used to show the teaching essentials. At the same time, based on summarizing the general methods of cultivating innovation ability, it is proposed to use scientific research projects as support to broaden students’ horizons and exercise their good thinking methods. [Result] It can guide students to summarize and reflect on the content they have learned, help them further deepen their understanding and application of the knowledge they have learned, effectively improve their learning interest and initiative, enhance their practical application and innovation abilities, and cultivate their ability to solve practical engineering problems. [Conclusion] In the teaching of mechatronics theory, teachers should combine specific cases and practices to strengthen the combination of theory and practice among students, which can improve the teaching quality of the “Mechatronics Integration” course and have good inspiration for improving the quality of innovative talent cultivation in the field of mechatronics.
