New Engineering Education

Refer to the "Washington Accord", an international accreditation agreement for undergraduate professional engineering academic degrees, SDIM design the course contents and teaching objectives, formulate the learning outcomes of the students and assessment methods to ensure that the knowledge of the courses taught in the new engineering model is complete and systematic. Instead of teaching in traditional large classroom, SDIM courses are conducted in a student-centered active learning environment through project-based learning in order to enable student knowledge acquiring and overall quality improving simultaneously. Customized training program will be formulated based on students' own professional interest to render student a specific academic strength. Meanwhile, students are guided to accumulate and integrate multidisciplinary knowledge to form a broad knowledge base. SDIM aims to cultivate engineering leaders with outstanding academic strength, critical thinking, design thinking, system thinking, team spirit,  scientific ethics and cross-cultural communication skills.
