Implementing CDIO in Raw Materials Sector


The “CDIO II” project focuses on driving the change from traditional educational models
focused primarily on conservative teaching methodologies, towards industry driven education
in raw materials incorporating CDIO principles. It thereby addresses the mission statement of
EIT Raw Materials as well as the goals of the worldwide CDIO community: To foster innovation
and entrepreneurship in raw materials education in order to ensure appropriate adaptation to
changing industry requirements. For a comprehensive overview of the CIDO II project, please
also refer to a bilingual article published in Mining Report Glückauf 05/2018 titled “Rethinking
Engineering Education - Implementation of Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO)”.
