As a subject closely related to innovation, design art needs innovation more than any other discipline, and cultivating students’ creativity is naturally called one of the training goals of environmental design students, the author thinks that cultivating the creativity of environmental design students should start from the cultivation of students’ creative thinking and students’ creative personality, and point directly to teaching. Under the tide of promoting university students’ innovation and entrepreneurship, it is not enough to cultivate creativity, we should learn from the successful experience of the German University of Applied Science and Technology and cultivate creative professionals in applied technology environment design.
