CDIO seminar: Towards agile, interdisciplinary and individualised engineering education
Engineering education has traditionally been delivered in long, discipline-specific programmes such as mechanical, electrical or civil engineering. This setup has been successful for almost 200 years but is challenged in today’s situation where students need to be better prepared for addressing transdisciplinary problems in, for example, sustainable development, automation and sports technology. In addition, the fast pace of technology development requires frequent updates of educational content, not easy to combine with the 4-5 year change cycle of current engineering curricula. Furthermore, today’s students are expecting an education that enables a high degree of individualisation.

The seminar aims to present and discuss novel agile, interdisciplinary and individualized curricular design approaches with particular relevance to CDIO education. How to ensure stakeholder engagement, how to establish and maintain a change culture and how operate these models for large student groups are among the topics to be focused.

The seminar will provide an opportunity to learn insights from some leading experts in the area and to share knowledge and experiences with other CDIO educators.

Keynote speakers
​Confirmed speakers from Chalmers University of Technology, the Norwegian Institute of Science and Technology and Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology.

Target audience
- Teachers in CDIO programmes
- Educational leaders
- Engineering education scholars with a particular interest in problem-based learning and CDIO
