CES EduPack: Accreditation and Transferable Skills

with Marc Fry and Hannah Melia

To Join this web seminar on Wednesday, June 3 to find out how CES EduPack support you in teaching accredited courses and give their students skills for the future.

Accreditation bodies are looking for courses that develop in students both depth of understanding in a particular discipline and breadth in the skills required to make an impact as an engineer in industrial practice. This webinar will focus on four areas where CES EduPack can support educators in giving students the practice they need to acquire useful transferable skills.

Although this webinar will focus on the ABET Accreditation criteria, CEAB, EUR-ACE, UK Spec, and CDIO have similar requirements.

See examples of how you can help students to achieve key learning outcomes (letters below refer to ABET Accreditation):

  • Use industry standard tools - (k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
  • Handle data smartly - (b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • Make rational decisions - (e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • Understand the environmental and social impact of their work - (c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
