At DTU Civil Engineering the bsc. eng. Program in architectural engineering is organized according to CDIO principles. Autumn 2009 was the first time that the ‘full CDIO package’ was realized. The lessons learned from this first round will be presented along with the changes they inspired : e.g. the introduction of a successful mutual workshop between the geometry course and the design course. This has realized the full potential of structural design and firmly highlighted the creative potential in geometry to hesitant students. The mutual workshop has also shown a potential as a general tool that can enhance curriculum integration.
