Abstract [en]

Modern production engineers must be able to perform a wide variety of tasks with steadily increasing complexity. In this context, it is especially important to endow production engineers with cross-disciplinary knowledge since this is vital to changing technology and international competition. Production engineering (PE) curricula must therefore keep pace with the changes demanded by future trends in advanced manufacturing. A homogenous production engineering curricula that specifies the most important areas in this field is a suitable platform to start from. The paper presents the some results from the EPRODE project being conducted by a number of European academic institutions and industrial organizations into manufacturing education issues. The aim of the project is to anticipate the needs for education of European and national manufacturing organizations of the future and to provide a unified framework for a common body of knowledge development that meet these needs.
