Educational programs at university level are influenced by several different factors. The major factors are the research-based development of technical knowledge and engineering reasoning, the needs of the business environment employing engineers, and the development of university structures and university policies. Also, considerations such as availability and interest of teachers, competences of students, campus facilities, available textbooks, etc., must be taken into account. For a curriculum based on the concept of CDIO a model illustrating the major influencers on the curriculum development is presented in the paper.
