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…

Goldstein, Molly H.; Purzer, Senay; Adams, Robin S.; Chao, Jie; Xie, Charles – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2019
Although reflection is a key behaviour of expert designers, it is often a challenging task for new designers. In addition, research on the reflectivity of student designers is limited. The purpose of this study is twofold: (1) to identify the levels of reflectivity while designing, and (2) to study the relationship between reflectivity and…

Holland, Dónal P.; Walsh, Conor J.; Bennett, Gareth J. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2019
The interpretation and reuse of previous design solutions, or precedents, is central to design. This paper describes qualitative research conducted over three years at two institutions, aimed at investigating the role of design knowledge re-use in project-based mechanical design courses. Research data were collected through participant…

Minichiello, Angela; Marx, Sherry; McNeill, Laurie; Hailey, Christine – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2019
While textbooks serve as a primary source of content material and problem-solving practice for undergraduates in engineering, studies that investigate how engineering students prepare assignments based on textbook problems are limited. To examine how engineering students complete textbook-based assignments outside of class, this exploratory…

Carstensen, Anna-Karin; Bernhard, Jonte – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2019
Modelling is a central activity in practical engineering and something that is also useful in engineering education research (EER). Additionally, qualitative research methods have found important applications in engineering research, although their use in EER has not always been widely accepted. Design science research is a qualitative research…

Shekhar, Prateek; Prince, Michael; Finelli, Cynthia; Demonbrun, Matt; Waters, Cynthia – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2019
Engineering education researchers are increasingly integrating qualitative and quantitative research methods to study learning and retention in engineering. While quantitative methods can provide generalisable results, qualitative methods generate rich, descriptive understanding of the investigated phenomenon. On the other hand, a mixed methods…
