This paper describes how the CDIO standards have influenced the cross-disciplinary projects that are part of DTU's Chemical & Biochemical B.Eng program. Four projects are described: the 1st semester design-build project that has a power plant as the frame; the 2nd semester project in biochemistry where students investigate samples of meat from retail stores, the 3rd semester project where design of unit operations used in enzyme production is in focus, and the 4th semester design-build project on biotechnology encompassing planning and performing lab scale fermentation experiments and designing and performing the product recovery.
