Since early 2006 that ISEP – Oporto Polytechnic Institute, has been participating in the CDIO initiative, mainly through the Informatics Engineering baccalaureate. At 2009, ISEP start designing the curriculum of a System Engineering baccalaureate (LES-ISEP), also adopting the CDIO paradigm and principles as the base framework for curriculum and course design. The creation of LES-ISEP was in fact the result of an industry’s request for trained professionals on systems engineering and process management. In this paper, the authors present the rationale behind the curriculum and program design and how the CDIO approach was used as the framework for this program.
