Under the background of accelerating new industrial revolution, China's higher engineering education is in urgent need of cultivating a group of innovative talents in engineering science and technology. In order to improve the quality of engineering education, China proposed the "new engineering research and practice project" in June 2017. This study attempted to adopt systematic review based on 207 projects of engineering superior universities in China's new engineering research and practice

The research findings are as follows: (1) The commonness of construction schemes is emerging. In terms of mechanism construction, the mechanism of collaborative education receives the most attention, while the talent ability pays more attention to the cultivation of soft ability; (2) The overall design of the projects are somewhat lacking innovation and features, and certain construction schemes are similar, failing to effectively combine the advantages of universities and disciplines to serve local industries and truly show its characteristics; (3) Most of the construction plans are aimed at the transformation of traditional disciplines, and there is little construction of corresponding disciplines for certain national key industries.
