Courses are the link between teachers and students. The matching degree of the curriculum and the students’ future development largely affects the future competitiveness of students and students’ satisfaction with the school specialty. Based on industrial engineering specialty of Nanchang University, this article applies fishbone diagram to analyze the direction of students’ future development, and uses questionnaire to collect students’ preference of the future development, and analyzes the collecting data by AHP (analytical hierarchy process). Combining with the weight of the direction of future development and the importance of courses, we find a new combination of curriculum and a plan of rearrangement. By comparing the results with the existing curriculum program, we ultimately find a more scientific way to rearrange the curriculum.
