A Practice-Based Model for Continued Engineering Education.
Graube, Gabriele; Theuerkauf, Walter E.
This pedagogical training approach is presented based on an engineering degree and oriented towards the tasks and the expected job profile of an engineer in a company's research and development department. The pedagogical approach is based on two different types of learning: self-controlled individual learning right on the job while fulfilling project tasks; and pedagogical systematic learning while attending job-oriented accompanying training courses. The curricular structure of this training program is presented together with the results of this cooperative, industry-related approach, and its importance for the training and engineering studies at universities is shown.
