The cultivation of outstanding engineers puts forward further requirements for the students' practical engineering ability. As a key practical course in the field of Mechanical Engineering (ME), the "Productive Practice" course plays an important role in cultivating students' professional practical abilities and comprehensive qualities. This paper proposes teaching research and reform of the Mechanical Productive Practice course based on the new requirements of cultivating outstanding engineers for practical courses. With the teaching reform methodology and implementation in aspects such as the integration of professional theory and practice courses, the practice platforms design considering both internal and external, the combination of virtual and real productive practice, and the optimization of the course process assessment system. The aim is to comprehensively enhance the quality of engineering education through improving internship models and optimizing assessment methods.
