Graduation design quality of students majoring in mechanical engineering in our school, graduation design results of mechanical specialties were statistical analyzed in the past six years. Moreover, relationships between graduation design quality and the title of the supervisor, per capita number of graduates of each supervisor and the time consum for graduation design were investigated. The results show that the quality of graduation design of the investigated majors was generally declining and experienced three stages of decline, rise and fall in the past 6 years. The average achievement of graduation design reduced by 2.45%. Graduation design was closely related to the title of the supervisor, per capita number of graduates for each supervisor, the attitude to graduation design of students and the time consum for graduation design. Graduation design quality would be effectively improved by reducing per capita number of graduates for each supervisor, increasing the experience of teacher with junior professional title, realizing the importance of graduation design and increasing the proportion of graduates who complete their graduation design within 3 months after the agreement of thesis proposal.
