While the CDIO standards and syllabus give a strong framework upon which to develop good quality engineering programmes, the practical means by which Universities and Colleges implement these is often less clear. We are therefore keen to work with a number of institutions worldwide currently in the early stages of CDIO implementation to help develop a knowledge base and support network to help guide future partners in choosing and deploying a suitable CDIO implementation strategy for their own organisation.
