1 Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences CHALLENGES IN IMPLEMENTING CDIO IN ALL ENGINEERING EDUCATION PROGRAMMESMarkku KarhuDirector, Degree Programmes in Information Technology
2 Content Overview of Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences Challenges in Engineering EducationCDIO RoadmapStructure of curriculum based on CDIO requirementSelf-evaluation of the CDIO implementation at MetropoliaConclusion
4 Some facts of Finland Population 5,3 million Capital city is Helsinki Good social security and health careExcellent education systemOne of the safest country in the world
5 Sightseeing to Metropolia UAS HeadquarterMy campus
6 Metropolia - The largest University of Applied Sciences in Finland students61 bachelor and master level degree programmes4 fields of study:CultureBusiness and AdministrationHealth Care and Social ServicesEngineering Education (7000 students)Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa (Helsinki Metropolitan arkea)
7 Vision for 2012In terms of assessed quality, Metropolia will be Finland’s top university of applied sciences in terms of results and competitiveness. As a learning environment that combines labour market skills and higher education, Metropolia will train highly valued experts and meet the capital region’s challenges with an analytical and active approach – boldly and reliably.
8 Strategic objectives1. The training and research and development will be of high international standard and carried out in cooperation with the labour market.2. The learning and research and development will combine to create innovation, know-how and functional solutions that serve the metropolitan region, labour market and higher education.3. Metropolia will provide major contributions to social, economic and cultural issues.4. Metropolia will be an ever-developing place of study, a sought-after partner and reliable employer.5. Metropolia will always put the customer first and operate with financial and functional efficiency.

10 Challenges in Engineering Education Low attractiveness: less than 2 applicants for each study placeDrop-out rate > 50%Late graduation <- most students work simultaneouslyDemand of industry varies a lot; education is a long process“Global” welfare depends on engineering artefactsGlobal economy -> all companies operate worldwideInternational education markets

15 CDIO Roadmap (1/2) Started from the SEFI conference in Ankara 2005 Exploring and studying CDIO pedagogyCDIO book “Rethinking Engineering Education” distributed widely and read carefullyWorld conferences in Montreal, Massachusetts, Ghent, Copenhagen, Singapore…Faculty is interested and waiting with enthusiasmCurricula planning in 2008 included CDIO principles (introductory project and joint engineering project, integration of courses including soft skills)
16 CDIO Roadmap (2/2)Metropolia UAS became a collaborating school, Autumn 2008A booklet written on “Introduction to Project-based learning and CDIO thinking” (in Finnish)Development project supported by VP’s of the three engineering schools
17 Structure of Curriculum (1) Bachelor of Engineering degree: 240 ECTS11 modules gives 165 ECTS: basic studies 75 ECTS incl. introductory project 6 ECTSWork placement 30 ECTS, summer time or two periods offCapstone project (15 ECTS): A project work of ECTS, integrated professional studies, project management and communication in Finnish or in EnglishFinal Year Project (Bachelor Thesis) 15 ECTSFreely elective studies 15 ECTS
19 The main objectives of CDIO development Start the process with a self-evaluation of all engineering programmes to identify from the present situationthe greatest success factors that already exist and might be used in the futurethe largest development needs in comparison with the CDIO criteriaEstablish and develop a “change agent” network inside the UAS to support the necessary changesBegin to collect information systemically and analyze the outcomes of the process as it progressesPlan how to continue with these important and necessary changes
20 Self-evaluation of the CDIO implementation at Metropolia
21 Rating Scale Used in the Self-evaluation 0. No initial program-level plan or pilot implementation1. Initial program-level plan and pilot implementation at the course or program level2. Well-developed program-level plan and prototype implementation at course and program levels3. Complete and adopted program-level plan and implementation of the plan at course and program levels underway4. Complete and adopted program-level plan and comprehensive implementation at course and program levels, with continuous improvement processes in place
22 Self-evaluation by 10 Degree Programmes (scale: 0 - 4)
24 Conclusion A start-up was launched First introductory projects were carried outNeed to be improved and profiledCapstone projectsOn commission, relationship to industrial traineeship and to final year project (?)Financing (?)Preference to project or learning achievements (?)Integration of courses (?), teacher teams (?)
