Bennedsen, J.; Rouvrais, S.; Roslöf, J.; Kontio, J.; Georgsson, F.; McCartan, C. D. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
This article discusses the tension between quality assurance and quality enhancement in engineering education at a programme level. It acknowledges that accreditation has evolved for many years, but does not agilely support innovation or implement changes in educational programmes. Existing quality assurance systems, institutional collaboration…

Rouvrais, Siegfried; Remaud, Bernard; Saveuse, Morgan – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
To favour an early exposure of students to professional practice, several engineering higher education institutions have implemented integrated curricula, as proposed in the international CDIO educational framework. In the 1990s, the French engineering education accreditation body introduced in its quality standards a compulsory internship period.…

Cosgrove, Thomas; O'Reilly, John – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Engineering education is appropriately concerned with technical problem solving. However, the philosophical tradition has periodically asserted that technical rationality is but one mode of rationality. Informed by experience in both design practice and engineering education the authors agree with Donald Schön that professional artistry is an…

Meikleham, Alexandra; Hugo, Ron – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Quality feedback is crucial to learning; the growth of online delivery has altered how it is obtained and shared. Educators interested in improving online learning can benefit from understanding formal and informal feedback flows existing in face-to-face environments and how these transfer online. This article examines the nuance of informal…

Chuchalin, Alexander – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
The CDIO Standards are effective means for upgrading and improving the quality of basic engineering education. In 2013-2016, a group of 21 leading Russian universities became participants of '5-100 Russian academic excellence project' and focused on graduate and postgraduate engineering education. Evolution of the CDIO Standards for modernising…

Kohn Rådberg, Kamilla; Lundqvist, Ulrika; Malmqvist, Johan; Hagvall Svensson, Oskar – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Challenge-based learning (CBL) is a multidisciplinary approach that encourages students to work actively with peers, teachers and stakeholders in society to identify complex challenges, formulate relevant questions and take action for sustainable development. In this paper, it is argued that CBL can be viewed as an evolution of the Conceive,…

Muñoz, Marcia; Martínez, Claudia; Cárdenas, Cristian; Medina, Mario – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
We present the lessons learnt in the process of adopting the Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO) approach for the curricular reform of the Computer Science program at the School of Engineering of the Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción, Chile. These lessons were gathered through a participatory and iterative process involving…

Murray, Mike; Hendry, Gillian; McQuade, Robert – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Vocational disciplines such as engineering provide an ideal opportunity for contextualising the curriculum. The provision of co-curricular activities can stimulate students to assimilate their prior knowledge and skills whilst enhancing employability attributes. Team-based co-curricular activities linked to problem-based learning can offer…

Edström, Kristina – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
The CDIO Initiative is a community for engineering education development, but since 2016 its annual conference also calls for research. This paper considers possible roles for CDIO in the field of engineering education research (EER). The EER landscape is explored, in particular considering whether the aim of research is to seek knowledge to…

Wu, Fan; Fan, Weihua; Arbona, Consuelo; de la Rosa-Pohl, Diana – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Guided by Expectancy Value Theory (EVT), we investigated the association of students' engineering self-efficacy and subjective task values (attainment, intrinsic, utility and cost) to four achievement-related behaviours: choice to take more engineering courses, effort in academic tasks, persistence to complete engineering tasks in the face of…

Wolff, Karin – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Employer complaints of engineering graduate inability to 'apply knowledge' call for a better understanding of the theory-practice relationship in technology-driven twenty-first century industries. A novel systems-based model was developed to analyse how mechatronics engineering practitioners apply mathematics, physics and logic-based knowledge to…

Winberg, Christine; Bramhall, Mike; Greenfield, David; Johnson, Patrick; Rowlett, Peter; Lewis, Oliver; Waldock, Jeff; Wolff, Karin – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
In this systematic review of the research literature on engineering employability, curricular and pedagogical arrangements that prepare graduates for work in the twenty-first century were identified. The research question guiding the review was: Which curricular and pedagogical arrangements promote engineering students' employability? The…

McQuade, Robert; Ventura-Medina, Esther; Wiggins, Sally; Anderson, Tony – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
With the increasing complexity of the engineering role, today's graduates must be capable of confronting both technical and societal problems; underpinned by effective teamwork at their core. Problem-based learning has been implemented in engineering to better prepare students for modern industry. However, limited research has examined the complex…

Pittich, Daniel; Tenberg, Ralf; Lensing, Karsten – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
The article discusses the challenges and the potential approaches of competence-based programmes for higher education institutions, starting at their inception in the Bologna process. It focuses particularly on curriculum transformation and implementation of action-orientated learning concepts. Consequently, the article takes stock of recent…

Lakin, Joni M.; Wittig, Ashley H.; Davis, Edward W.; Davis, Virginia A. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Development of a professional identity may contribute to persistence in an engineering major. Further, perceiving alignment of one's career values to engineering as well as believing that one is enacting engineering during coursework are expected to support identity formation. Using mixed methods approaches, we explored data provided by 186…
