In this study, the education method which is different from traditional Chinese education methods for its accentuation of practical training is proposed. Compared with traditional engineering education methods, engineering-oriented practical training methodology is student-centered, contains various educational activities, requires interdisciplinary skills, values teamwork and have more objective evaluation methods. Based on the educational case of anti-skid control of railway train, a semi-physical simulation platform is introduced with details in design philosophy, system structure, operator interface and training process. The intention of creating the platform is to provide the students who use it with more hands-on experience since one of the key factors in transfer of learning is the diversion of practice. Based on the knowledge transfer theory, we encourage our students to do their work more independently and freely and the corresponding scores of their performance prove that the students who are better-rounded tend to perform well in the training courses we offered while those only with straight a scores may not outperform their classmates. Thus, the results indicate that this mode is effective in education and instructive to the reform of technological college education.
