On the 28th of August, Aldert Kamp, 4TU.CEE leader of TU Delft, was invited by the Swedish Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) in Stockholm to join their 100-year Jubilee Seminar for a keynote, a seminar presentation and a contribution to three workshops. He presented his vision on the future of higher engineering education and also discovered that in Sweden 4TU.CEE is seen as a role model of universities working together in enhancing engineering education.

At Eindhoven University of Technology, students participate in different courses to obtain their degree in engineering education. But what do they actually learn during their time at university? And how do they perceive their own learning? To answer these questions, TU/e developed a ‘learning gains framework’ for engineering education. Leaning on the CDIO framework as a basis, Martina van Uum and Birgit Pepin were inspired by other frameworks, such as the mathematical proficiency framework of the National Research Council, and a general learning gains framework (Vermunt et al., 2018). The framework developed by Van Uum and Pepin consists of five strands that are interwoven: 1) Disciplinary conceptual and procedural knowledge, 2) General cognitive learning, 3) Attitude, thought and learning, 4) Teamwork and communication, 5) The enterprise (see the figure below).
