Objectives: Pharmaceutical engineering experiments are among the most important links in teaching of the pharmaceutical engineering specialty. This study aimed to reform the content of the experiment course for the pharmaceutical engineering specialty under the guidance of the outcome-based education (OBE) theory. Materials and Methods: We reformed the teaching content and methods of the pharmaceutical engineering experiment course at Zhejiang University of Science and Technology by using problembased learning (PBL) teaching method and established a scientific evaluation system based on the PBL teaching method. Results: In the process of teaching implementation, the chosen approach stimulated students’ enthusiasm for learning, exerted their subjective initiative, improved their ability to use the knowledge comprehensively to analyze and solve problems, enhanced their ability to think critically and promoted the training of their innovation awareness, solidarity, cooperation consciousness and scientific spirit.

Key words: Outcome-based education, Problem-based learning, Pharmaceutical engineering experiment, Evaluation system.
