At present, as a new engine of economic development and a new way of innovation-driven development strategy under the new normal state, "mass entrepreneurship and innovation" puts forward new ideas, development and requirements for personnel training mode and college education reform. It is an inevitable way to integrate the depth of knowledge and culture, the new force in the times of mass innovation with the mass entrepreneurship and innovation for promoting the innovation and entrepreneurship education capacity of in colleges and universities. In May 2015, the General Office of the State Council issued the Implementation Opinions on Deepening the Reform of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Education in Institutions of Higher Learning on the problems existing in comprehensively deepening the reform of innovation and entrepreneurship education in colleges and universities, in an effort to comprehensively promote the level of innovation and entrepreneurship education in China's colleges and universities. College students, as the main force of innovation and entrepreneurship, shoulder the important mission of realizing the goal of national planning. Under the positive response and vigorous promotion of national colleges and universities, the education and practice of innovation and entrepreneurship of college students in China are in full swing all over the country. After several years of exploration and development, it is necessary to make a periodic analysis and summary on the general situation of college students' innovation and entrepreneurship, and what problems need to be solved and whether they conform to the training objectives of innovation and entrepreneurship education.

Through reviewing the literature related to innovation and entrepreneurship education, it is found that colleges and universities have not yet formed a set of scientific and widely implemented evaluation system of innovation and entrepreneurship education capacity. From the evaluation index system to the quantitative research, it is scarcer to implement the evaluation and improve the ability plan.

Through the investigation of 270 business schools in America and Canada, Vesper concludes that seven factors, such as curriculum, teacher's thesis and works, and social influence, are the key factors influencing the innovation and entrepreneurship education project in colleges and universities (Vesper & Gartner, 1997). Huang et al, emphasized that the colleges and universities serve as the social function of knowledge production and application adjuster and provided the strategic direction for the development of innovation and entrepreneurship education in many aspects (Huang, Zhao & Tang, 2015). From the perspective of economic efficiency, Li Jicheng constructed a three-level index system of curriculum, teachers and environmental policy (Li, 2012). Li Yue et al., put forward the four-dimensional index system of target layer, customer layer, process layer, and resource layer (Li & Wang, 2014). Song et al., established the performance evaluation index system of innovation and entrepreneurship education by expert investigation method and made an evaluation analysis on the quality of innovation and entrepreneurship education of a university in Anhui by AHP model (Song, Xu & Ning, 2012). Based on the QFD theory, Qin Jingmin constructed the quality mechanism of innovation and entrepreneurship education to analyze the influence factors and structure of innovation and entrepreneurship education and uses DEA-AHP-FAHP evaluation model to analyze the quality of innovation and entrepreneurship education in colleges and universities of Shandong Province (Qin, 2009).

Through combing the previous researches in the literature and combining the present development of innovation and entrepreneurship education in colleges and universities, this study selects 9 colleges and universities in Jiangsu Province as research objects, designs the index system of innovation and entrepreneurship education capacity, and comprehensively evaluates the innovation and entrepreneurship education capacity of 9 colleges and universities with the method of entropy TOPSIS, with a purpose of improving the attention paid to the innovation and entrepreneurship education capacity. …
