Reforming Engineering Education: The CDIO Initiative
Gaidi, K. E.
Industry and Higher Education, v17 n6 p431-434 Dec 2003
The CDIO initiative began as a joint endeavour involving four engineering schools in Sweden and the USA. The number of schools joining the project is increasing constantly. CDIO focuses on four activities--curriculum development, teaching and learning, workshops, and assessment projects--with a view to improving engineering education programmes by redesign and through the introduction of real engineering skills as well as hands-on experiences.
