ABSTRACT In the background of the Ministry of Education to start “a Plan for Educating and Training Out-standing Engineers” (PETOE), Nantong University has implemented the “3 + 1” training mode re-form in computer science students; one of the most critical and core is the sub-module practice in the fourth year. The survey about 2015 graduates, teachers and companies who involved in the reform indicates that students’ training quality and employability are positively correlated with the sub-module practice which can enhance students’ professional competence and professionalism. At the same time, we should form practice guidance and management specifications, push teachers to adapt to the reform and strengthen the cultivation of students’ autonomous learning and thinking actively.
