Traditional engineering education of innovative thinking mainly focused on knowledge imparting, thinking and learning, but it weakens the cultivation of students' practical ability. In this paper, a new pattern of innovative thinking engineering education is proposed, which combines abstract design innovation with specific robot maker practice. By offering general course for all professional students, it teaches the theory, methods and tools of systematic innovative thinking, and cultivates students' system design methods and innovative thinking. Taking the design and production process of robots as the object and content of practical teaching, the traditional teaching pattern centered on teachers, classrooms and textbooks is changed, teachers' reflection on teaching is promoted, so that it can be truly changedfrom a lecturer to an inspirator of learning, at the same time, teaching flexibility is increased, and students' highlevel thinking and practical abilities are improved. Classroom statistics show that 92.14% of the students think that their innovative thinking ability has been improved, and 90.71% of the students consider that their practical ability has been enhanced. It shows that the engineering education innovation pattern with design ideas and robot maker practice can inspire students' innovative thinking, while improving students' robotic practical ability.
