Higher education is facing many emerging challenges in the big data era, curriculum has to be reconstructed with big data technologies to get teaching and learning better and better, cause big data technologies has the abilities to mining magnanimity data produced and predict the important parts in the education process. Curriculum of university of applied sciences is a new type vocational and educational course in higher education, birth in the big date era, must be constructed with big data technologies, such as data mining, statistical analysis, mathematic model, cloud computing. Tianjin Sino-German University of Applied Sciences, the first university of applied sciences in Mainland China, deployed big data technologies including date collection, data storage, data analysis, and data visualization to it’s curriculum reform, reforming links with curriculum design, curriculum development, curriculum implementation and curriculum evaluation, constructing a Dual Curriculum System is characterized by Chinese universities of applied sciences, resolving various contradictions and problems in the development of university of applied sciences. The curriculum reformation advances the process of constructing course, and improve the output of teaching and learning. Nevertheless, we found the big data talents is not sufficient, and the big data facilities cannot meet high quality of operation demand, these insufficient factors must be solved to make the dual curriculum system perfect.
