CDIO International

The CDIO™ INITIATIVE is an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineers. The framework provides students with an education stressing engineering fundamentals set in the context of Conceiving — Designing — Implementing — Operating (CDIO) real-world systems and products. Throughout the world, CDIO Initiative collaborators have adopted CDIO as the framework of their curricular planning and outcome-based assessment. CDIO collaborators recognize that an engineering education is acquired over a long period and in a variety of institutions, and that educators in all parts of this spectrum can learn from practice elsewhere. The CDIO network therefore welcomes members in a diverse range of institutions ranging from research-led internationally acclaimed universities to local colleges dedicated to providing students with their initial grounding in engineering.

Unique Characteristics of CDIO-based Education
1. A curriculum organized around mutually supporting courses, but with CDIO activities highly interwoven
2. Rich with student design-build-test projects
3. Integrating learning of professional skills such as teamwork and communication
4. Featuring active and experiential learning
5. Constantly improved through quality assurance process with higher aims than accreditation
