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 changes demanded by future trends in advanced manufacturing. A homogenous production engineering curricula that specifies the most important topics in this field is a suitable platform to start from. The paper presents some results from the EPRODE project being conducted by a number of European academic institutions and industrial organizations for creating a framework for continuing education in production engineering. The aim of this paper is to anticipate the needs for education of a European production engineer and to provide a unified curriculum for a common body of knowledge that meet these needs. The modular structure of the curricula creates a systematic framework that is able to respond faster to changes in the state of the art.
