Innovation and entrepreneurship education is a hot spot in my country's higher education field in recent years. Based on the characteristic practical experience and typical cases of the 5-year professional innovation and entrepreneurship education in mechanical engineering at the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology from 2015 to 2019, this article clarifies the specific implementation procedures of innovation and entrepreneurship practices based on professional knowledge in mechanical engineering and analyzes the implementation effects. In practice, each mechanical engineering innovation team can independently complete the innovative product design and communicate with the manufacturer during the entire manufacturing process to complete the process design, patent application protection for the results, and obtain the core required for innovation and entrepreneurship Ability to achieve the goal of the school’s innovation ability training. At the same time, innovation starts from meeting the most basic school and family needs, and gradually shifts to meeting social needs and paying attention to people's livelihood. Students' vision, awareness of innovation, innovation ability, innovative feelings and family spirit are also improving year by year. The innovative and entrepreneurial education practice with the characteristics of mechanical engineering has achieved good results.
