Marine engineering education program development due to CDIO concept
Paper in proceedings, 2019

The paper describes and analyses the education development process of the BSc Marine Engineering Program at Chalmers University of Technology. The goal has been to advance to both fulfil the STCW Manila Amendments as well as to implement the CDIO (Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate) approach for engineering education. The aim was to develop a program with emphasis on fundamentals in the context of marine engineering with integrated learning of general engineering skills that support the students' development of knowledge, skills and understanding for their future careers. External and internal evaluation as well as feedback from stakeholders give much credit to the developments and verify that the developments are in line with the aims as well as the expectations of an up-to-date marine engineering education.
