    Appendix A: The CDIO Syllabus v2.0

    1 DISCIPLINARY KNOWLEDGE AND REASONING (UNESCO: LEARNING TO KNOW)1.1 KNOWLEDGE OF UNDERLYING MATHEMATICS

    AND SCIENCES [3a]1.1.1 Mathematics (including statistics)1.1.2 Physics1.1.3 Chemistry1.1.4 Biology

    1.2 CORE ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTAL KNOWLEDGE [3a]1.3 ADVANCED ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTAL KNOWLEDGE,

    METHODS AND TOOLS [3k]

    2 PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL SKILLS AND ATTRIBUTES (UNESCO: LEARNING TO BE)2.1 ANALYTIC REASONING AND PROBLEM SOLVING [3e]

    2.1.1 Problem Identification and FormulationData and symptomsAssumptions and sources of biasIssue prioritization in context of overall goalsA plan of attack (incorporating model, analytical and numerical

    solutions, qualitative analysis, experimentation and consider-ation of uncertainty)

    2.1.2 ModelingAssumptions to simplify complex systems and environmentConceptual and qualitative modelsQuantitative models and simulations

    2.1.3 Estimation and Qualitative AnalysisOrders of magnitude, bounds and trendsTests for consistency and errors (limits, units, etc.)The generalization of analytical solutions

  • Appendix A: The CDIO Syllabus v2.0274

    2.1.4 Analysis with UncertaintyIncomplete and ambiguous informationProbabilistic and statistical models of events and sequencesEngineering cost-benefit and risk analysisDecision analysisMargins and reserves

    2.1.5 Solution and RecommendationProblem solutionsEssential results of solutions and test dataDiscrepancies in resultsSummary recommendationsPossible improvements in the problem solving process

    2.2 EXPERIMENTATION, INVESTIGATION AND KNOWLEDGE DISCOVERY [3b]2.2.1 Hypothesis Formulation

    Critical questions to be examinedHypotheses to be testedControls and control groups

    2.2.2 Survey of Print and Electronic LiteratureThe literature and media research strategyInformation search and identification using library, on-line

    and database toolsSorting and classifying the primary informationThe quality and reliability of informationThe essentials and innovations contained in the informationResearch questions that are unansweredCitations to references

    2.2.3 Experimental InquiryThe experimental concept and strategyThe precautions when humans are used in experimentsInvestigations based on social science methodsExperiment constructionTest protocols and experimental proceduresExperimental measurementsExperimental dataExperimental data versus available models

    2.2.4 Hypothesis Test and DefenseThe statistical validity of dataThe limitations of data employedConclusions, supported by data, needs and valuesPossible improvements in knowledge discovery process

    2.3 SYSTEM THINKING2.3.1 Thinking Holistically

    A system, its function and behavior, and its elementsTransdisciplinary approaches that ensure the system is under-

    stood from all relevant perspectivesThe societal, enterprise and technical context of the systemThe interactions external to the system, and the behavioral

    impact of the system

    2.3.2 Emergence and Interactions in SystemsThe abstractions necessary to define and model the entities or

    elements of the systemThe important relationships, interactions and interfaces

    among elementsThe functional and behavioral properties (intended and unin-

    tended) that emerge from the systemEvolutionary adaptation over time

    2.3.3 Prioritization and FocusAll factors relevant to the system in the wholeThe driving factors from among the wholeEnergy and resource allocations to resolve the driving issues

    2.3.4 Trade-offs, Judgment and Balance in ResolutionTensions and factors to resolve through trade-offsSolutions that balance various factors, resolve tensions and opti-

    mize the system as a wholeFlexible versus optimal solutions over the system lifetimePossible improvements in the system thinking used

    2.4 ATTITUDES, THOUGHT AND LEARNING2.4.1 Initiative and Willingness to Make Decisions in the Face

    of UncertaintyThe needs and opportunities for initiativeLeadership in new endeavors, with a bias for appropriate actionDecisions, based on the information at handDevelopment of a course of actionThe potential benefits and risks of an action or decision

    2.4.2 Perseverance, Urgency and Will to Deliver, Resourcefulness and Flexibility

    Sense of responsibility for outcomesSelf-confidence, courage and enthusiasmDetermination to accomplish objectivesThe importance of hard work, intensity and attention to detailDefinitive action, delivery of results and reporting on actions

  • Appendix A: The CDIO Syllabus v2.0276

    Adaptation to changeMaking ingenious use of the resources of the situation or

    groupA readiness, willingness and ability to work independentlyA willingness to work with others, and to consider and embrace

    various viewpointsAn acceptance of feedback, criticism and willingness to

    reflect and respondThe balance between personal and professional life

    2.4.3 Creative ThinkingConceptualization and abstractionSynthesis and generalizationThe process of inventionThe role of creativity in art, science, the humanities and

    technology

    2.4.4 Critical ThinkingPurpose and statement of the problem or issueAssumptionsLogical arguments (and fallacies) and solutionsSupporting evidence, facts and informationPoints of view and theoriesConclusions and implicationsReflection on the quality of the thinking

    2.4.5 Self-Awareness, Metacognition and Knowledge IntegrationOnes skills, interests, strengths and weaknessesThe extent of ones abilities, and ones responsibility for self-

    improvement to overcome important weaknessesThe importance of both depth and breadth of knowledgeIdentification of how effectively and in what way one is thinkingLinking knowledge together and identifying the structure

    of knowledge

    2.4.6 Lifelong Learning and Educating [3i]The motivation for continued self-educationThe skills of self-educationOnes own learning stylesRelationships with mentorsEnabling learning in others

    2.4.7 Time and Resource ManagementTask prioritizationThe importance and/or urgency of tasksEfficient execution of tasks
