The purpose of this study is to develop a teaching and learning model for the field of engineering to nurture innovative thinking and competency in engineering elites of the next generation. We have reviewed the literature to find out the necessary thinking and capabilities required for the next-generation engineers, and analyzing domestic and international case studies. As a result, we have created Scientific Inquiry and Creative Activity with Technology (SICAT) as a teaching and learning model applicable for the Fusion Materials field. SICAT model is classified ARDA, CoCD, ReSh type to apply directly in class according to teaching and learning objective. And we developed SICAT teaching and learning model guidebook for teachers. In near future, It should be consolidated the validity of the model and improved succeedingly in engineering education through applying and analyzing effectiveness in classes.
