Ten Years of CDIO - Experiences from a Long-Term Education Development Process
Paper i proceeding, 2010

The paper describes and analyses a long-term education development process – the CDIO-based reform of Chalmers University of Technology’s M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering programme. The initial goals of the reform programme and the changes that it has lead to are reviewed. The results of various kinds of evaluations – CDIO self-evaluations, external evaluations, student and faculty views and costs – are reviewed. A number of critical success factors for sustainable educational development process are identified.
