The propensity for innovation has emerged as a crucial attribute of contemporary college students, attributable to the rapid societal progression and the ongoing economic development. The cultivation of college students' innovation ability not only helps them to stand out in their personal career development, but also promotes the progress and development of the society. Despite the challenges and barriers encountered in nurturing creativity among Chinese college students, the conventional educational system overly emphasizes the dissemination and retention of knowledge. Consequently, it overlooks the development of students' creative thinking and innovative abilities. In their quest for academic excellence, students are often compelled to follow a linear progression, which in turn, restricts their opportunities to engage in creative thinking, thereby impeding their full potential for innovation. To foster this creativity, it is crucial to integrate practical connections and projects without neglecting their significance. Many university classroom teaching is still based on theoretical knowledge, and lacks practical links related to practical problem solving[1].The paucity of practical experience and projects, coupled with the dearth of an innovation-oriented atmosphere, has rendered it challenging for college students to implement the knowledge they have acquired in practice, thereby impeding the cultivation of their innovation abilities. Creating a supportive environment for innovation is necessary. This includes resource allocation for innovative pursuits, proper planning of innovation-related activities, and cultivating a culture of creativity. Yet, challenges such as insufficient resources for innovation, inadequate innovation-related activities, and the development of an innovative atmosphere pose significant problems in enhancing the innovative abilities of college students[2].This study aims to investigate efficient methods of nurturing innovative capabilities in college students, propose effective training models and strategies, and examine and analyze the practices and methods used both locally and globally to foster innovative potential in college students, as well as the actual circumstances of Chinese college students, targeted training techniques and tactics are proposed to furnish theoretical direction and practical reference for augmenting college students' innovation capacity.
