How to prepare master students in chemical and bioengineering for the unknown future
Paper in proceedings, 2004
At the School of Chemical and Bioengineering the Master programmes are drastically changed through engineering capabilities driven approach. General problems solvers and the ability to work on open ended problems are important features of these new engineers. One of the leading visions in this major change is integration on many levels. Integration between different chemistry subjects is not new but the parallel integration between numerical analysis, mathematics and engineering subjects is much more developed than in many other similar projects. Integration exists in terms of subjects but also in terms of different learning environmental (computer studios), teacher/student/student interactions and a more continuous assessment procedure in many subjects. This reformation program started in 2002 with about 180 new students and some results from the preliminarily evaluation will be presented together with the main ideas behind this work.
