2016 (English)In: The 12th International CDIO Conference: Proceedings – Full papers / [ed] Jerker Björkqvist; Kristina Edström; Ronald J. Hugo; Juha Kontio; Janne Roslöf; Rick Sellens; Seppo Virtanen, Turku, 2016, 164-172 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The aim of this paper is to propose an alternative expression for engineering practice in thecontext of the civil engineering and built environment sector. Our first objective is todemonstrate that the CDIO approach can, with these modifications, be applied in developingcivil engineering and built environment programs. Our second objective is to showcase theadaptability of the CDIO approach, thereby encouraging other thoughtful modifications andtransformations. We outline the ideas underpinning the original expression, and identify therole it plays in the CDIO methodology for curriculum development. Taking these factors intoaccount, a modified expression is proposed to describe the engineering process in civilengineering and built environment. We divide the process into ‘investigation – planning –design – construction – operation and management’. Further, to ‘products, processes andsystems’, we propose the addition of ‘environments’.
