Graduate students are the new force of innovation in China and to improve the quality of graduate students is a popular topic in academia . Currently, there exist some deficiencies in postgraduate education, such as the teaching pattern which values theory more than practice, the dearth of innovative spirit and the absence of innovative capacity. These problems are rooted in unclear studying objectives, the lack of opportunities for practical working experience and the incorrect learning methods, etc. Therefore, in order to cultivate innovative graduate students, it’s vital for us to refine the teaching methods to intrigue graduate students interest in innovation. And graduate students should receive comprehensive training which strengthens their capacity for literature reading and more opportunities for practical experiences.
