CDIO Standards 3.0 - Updates to the CDIO Framework


An effort to update the CDIO Standards was started in 2017, addressing the need to incorporate external changes to the context of engineering education, to address suggestions and critique that had been raised against earlier versions of the standards, and to establish an extendable framework. In this session, the results of this work are presented. In the new framework architecture the original twelve CDIO standards, from now on named “core” CDIO standards, are complemented by “optional” CDIO standards. Updates to the core CDIO Standards are made, and the first four optional standards are formulated: Sustainable development, Simulation-based mathematics, Engineering entrepreneurship and Internationalization & mobility. Participants are invited to discuss and comment on these proposals.

The session is lead by:

Kristina Edström is an Associate Professor in Engineering Education Development at the Department of Learning in Engineering Sciences, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, one of the founding members of the CDIO Initiative. Her research takes a critical approach to the “why”, “what” and “how” of engineering education reform. She has written numerous publications on CDIO.

Johan Malmqvist is a Professor in Product Development and Head of master program at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. His current research focuses on information management in the product development process (PLM) and on curriculum development methodology. He was for 17 years co-leader of the CDIO Initiative.

Matt Murphy is an Associate Professor of Engineering Design at the University of Liverpool, UK. He is a metallurgist with a research background in the additive manufacture (3D printing) of metals. For the last decade, Matt has focused on developing authentic learning and assessment experiences that seek to replicate industrial practice within Engineering degree programmes. Matt has been a CDIO collaborator for 15 years; was co-Chair of the UK & Ireland Region for 6 years, and has been a CDIO Council member-at-large for 4 years.

Anders Rosén is an Associate Professor at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology working as teacher and researcher at the Centre for Naval Architecture, as pedagogic developer at the Department of Learning in Engineering Sciences, and as Deputy Director of KTH Global Development Hub. He is currently focusing on promoting the integration of sustainable development in higher education, in particular through challenge-driven education.​
