IEM Shout Out – Half Day Course on Incorporating CDIO (TM) framework through Project based learning (PBL)


This is a shout out for the IEM. My Technical Division will be having a course on 27th November, presented by Ir Assoc. Prof. Dr. Satesh Namasivayam . It’ll be at 9am at Wisma IEM.

Ready to engineer. So it is said. But what is engineer and how do you engineer? What are the barriers to engineer and what are the key factors necessary to educate engineer? How to think like an engineer? Incorporating CDIOTM framework through Project based learning (PBL) can be one of the solutions. The CDIOTM initiative has been developing as more collaborators from all over the globe are taking this initiative as a base for their educational institutions adopting what so-called the “active learning” policy which includes, but not limited to, a complete system of a well-designed syllabus covering the skills and characteristics of graduating engineers.

Throughout CDIOTM phases, the learning process has changed from passive-note taking to more active-project-based education. This half-day workshop is designed with three (3) objectives as follows

  • Introduce participants to Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate initiative
  • Integrate CDIO initiative in curriculum to address complex, value added engineering products, processes, systems in modern and team-based environment;
  • Review the know-how of conceiving, designing, implementing and operating complex engineering systems of appropriate complexity.

Ir Assoc Prof Dr. Satesh Namasivayam BEng (1st Class Hons) PhD (London) FIMechE MIEM CEng PEng CIT (HRDF) is a Chartered and Professional Mechanical Engineer, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Deputy Dean from the School of Engineering at Taylor’s University, Malaysia.
