This paper describes the key organizational, cultural, and programmatic change processes for adapting and utilizing CDIO as a framework to: (a) systematically reform and implement a new sequence of design courses in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the California State University, Northridge; and (b) evaluate the effectiveness of the courses in improving student performance and retention, while taking into account unique characteristics of the Department’s diverse student population.
