The main role of the 12 CDIO Standards is to serve as a guideline for educational program reform and evaluation, create benchmarks and goals with worldwide application, and provide a framework for continuous improvement.

The CDIO Standards allow other academics and industry to identify CDIO Programs and their graduates.
