In response to the new round of technological revolution and industrial revolution, and actively cooperating with the national education reform strategy planning and policy requirements, domestic universities have taken the initiative to deepen the reform of engineering education, and lay out the emerging engineering talents training and education innovation, so as to train future-oriented innovative engineering talents. Civil engineering, as a typical traditional engineering specialty, is facing the practical problems of further "transformation" and "upgrading". Civil engineering construction regulations, as a course with significant interdisciplinary characteristics, is in line with the development trend of emerging engineering construction. Adhering to the concept of emerging engineering education, the ideas and direction of curriculum construction are proposed from four aspects of curriculum basic information, teaching objectives, curriculum content and teaching methods through comparative analysis of the building situation of construction regulations courses in four famous foreign universities. Taking the construction of civil engineering construction regulations course in Hohai University as an example, the construction of course materials, the practice of "flipped classroom" teaching model and the construction and effect of open online courses are analyzed and summarized.
