PDF

The Bachelor curriculum innovations are studied by the 3TU.CEE2 in three different
phases of the renewal process (1) the design of the intended curricula, (2) the implemented and (3) the perceived curricula [2] of the three Technical Universities.
[2] In this paper the results of the first study on the intended curricula of the
Universities are discussed. We tried to capture the rationale behind the curriculum
change and the intentions as specified in policy documents and focused specifically
on the drivers of Change, the change approach and the characteristics of change.
The leading research question in this research is “In what way did the three technical Universities realise their bachelor curriculum innovation objectives?”

The special focus in this project is the uniqueness of developing and implementing
engineering course programmes. Engineering is an interdisciplinary field where scientific knowledge is applied to design solutions to solve complex problems in an
“engineering kind of way”.

Sefi 2015 contribution: Engineering in Dutch Schools
PDF
768 kB
Since 2004 a growing number of ‘Technetium’ schools in the Netherlands have introduced engineering projects in their curriculum[1]. Goals include stimulating learner’s creativity and broadening their horizon with respect to engineering studies and related jobs. Throughout their school career students work on authentic tasks originating from companies and institutes. The final assignment connects with a Polytechnic or University. As many projects incorporate engineering elements we expect study choice impacts. We found a shift in learner preferences towards design-based engineering studies.
