In 1999 Linkoping University started a collaboration between MIT, Chalmers and KTH with the aim of developing engineering. This was the start of the CDIO initiative. In 2002 the first cohort of students in the study program of Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering (Y-program) entered into a program designed to meet the requirements of a CDIO syllabus. A CDIO project course was introduced the first semester and an elaborated project course delivered in year three and a build-design course in year four. In a longitudinal study four cohorts of students, starting in 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2002 have been monitored on a regular basis throughout their studies, in order to see what their expectations were when they started, their experiences of their studies and their reflections on their studies after graduation, in relation to work and employment. This study had a focus on student experiences in relation to the intentions of the curriculum and the specific CDIO syllabus.
