Abstract：Under the background of the development of new engineering disciplines, the talent training model and teaching model have undergone profound changes, and the teaching of design history theory needs to re-establish a suitable curriculum teaching system. Aiming at the problem of the mismatch between the current curriculum design and the students' subject knowledge, this article is based on the knowledge production theory, and tries to construct a history theory curriculum system under the background of a new engineering subject from four aspects: knowledge orientation, content system, teaching mode, and teaching objectives. Under the development of new engineering disciplines and the needs of a complex knowledge structure, we will use the means of updating and expanding the content of the curriculum to explore and construct a design history curriculum system suitable for the discipline of mechanical engineering, in order to strengthen teaching, broaden the scope of professionalism, and cultivate compound talents. It is of great significance.
Key Words：new engineering disciplines; Knowledge Production Theory; history of design; curriculum structure
