Engineering ability is an important quality for college and university graduates majoring in engineering. Flipped classroom is an effective teaching mode, which has been widely used in colleges and universities. How to cultivating engineering ability in the process of flipped classroom teaching is an important problem. This paper considered the approach of engineering ability training, and discussed the requirements of flipped classroom in the aspects of curriculum goal, teaching process organization, teaching platform and evaluation system. The main major courses for undergraduates in specialties of Big Data is used to illustrate the approach. The results show that the proposed architecture and method are effective.
