1 Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences

2 Content Overview of Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences
Challenges in Engineering Education CDIO Roadmap Structure of curriculum based on CDIO requirement Self-evaluation of the CDIO implementation at Metropolia Conclusion

3 “The country of thousands of lakes”

4 Some facts of Finland Population 5,3 million Capital city is Helsinki
Good social security and health care Excellent education system One of the safest country in the world

5 Sightseeing to Metropolia UAS
Headquarter My campus

6 Metropolia - The largest University of Applied Sciences in Finland
students 61 bachelor and master level degree programmes 4 fields of study: Culture Business and Administration Health Care and Social Services Engineering Education (7000 students) Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa (Helsinki Metropolitan arkea)

7 Vision for 2012 In 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 objectives 1. 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.

9 Degree Programmes in Engineering (Tuition in Finnish)
Bachelor’s degrees are available in Automotive and Transport Engineering Automation Technology Bio and Food Technology Chemical Engineering Civil Engineering Construction Management Electrical Engineering Environmental Engineering (Tuition in English) Information Technology (Tuition in English) Laboratory Sciences Land Surveying Technology Materials Technology and Surface Engineering Media Technology Media Engineering (Tuition in English) Medical Engineering Mechanical Engineering Supply Chain Management Master’s degrees are available in: Automation Technology Building Services Engineering Industrial Management (in English) Information Technology (in English) International Master´s programme ConRem (jointly run with FHTW Berlin): Construction and Real Estate Management

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

15 CDIO Roadmap (1/2) Started from the SEFI conference in Ankara 2005
Exploring and studying CDIO pedagogy CDIO book “Rethinking Engineering Education” distributed widely and read carefully World conferences in Montreal, Massachusetts, Ghent, Copenhagen, Singapore… Faculty is interested and waiting with enthusiasm Curricula 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 2008 A 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 ECTS 11 modules gives 165 ECTS: basic studies 75 ECTS incl. introductory project 6 ECTS Work placement 30 ECTS, summer time or two periods off Capstone project (15 ECTS): A project work of ECTS, integrated professional studies, project management and communication in Finnish or in English Final Year Project (Bachelor Thesis) 15 ECTS Freely elective studies 15 ECTS

18 Structure of Curriculum (2) Example
1st Period 2nd Period 3rd Period 4th Period Module #1 (c) Module #2 (c) Module #3 (c) Module #4 (c) 1st year Intr.project Intr.project Module #5 (c) Module #6 (c) Module #7 (o) Module #8 (o) 2nd year Orient.project Work Placement Module #9 (o) Module #10 (o) Project module 3rd year Work Placement Module #11 (o) Final Year Project Thesis 4th year Elective Studies

19 The main objectives of CDIO development
Start the process with a self-evaluation of all engineering programmes to identify from the present situation the greatest success factors that already exist and might be used in the future the largest development needs in comparison with the CDIO criteria Establish and develop a “change agent” network inside the UAS to support the necessary changes Begin to collect information systemically and analyze the outcomes of the process as it progresses Plan 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 implementation 1. Initial program-level plan and pilot implementation at the course or program level 2. Well-developed program-level plan and prototype implementation at course and program levels 3. Complete and adopted program-level plan and implementation of the plan at course and program levels underway 4. 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)

23 Adaptation of the CDIO Standards

24 Conclusion A start-up was launched
First introductory projects were carried out Need to be improved and profiled Capstone projects On commission, relationship to industrial traineeship and to final year project (?) Financing (?) Preference to project or learning achievements (?) Integration of courses (?), teacher teams (?)
