SDIM New Engineering Education (NEE) System
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.
- Customized Training Program
Customized training program will be formulated based on students’ own professional interest to render student a distinct professional strength leading to a clear direction for further studies and employment.
- Project-based Learning
The project-based learning model is adopted to create an active learning environment. In the process of completing the project, students recognize their own professional interests, enhance their learning enthusiasm, acquire teamwork skills, and experience the charm of cross-integration of multidisciplinary knowledge.
- Blended Learning
As an important supplement to face-to-face teaching model, students are encouraged to use other learning tools to acquire and master knowledge through blended learning model, including online video courses, group discussions, self-study under the guidance of teachers, corporate internships, academic seminars, etc. to cultivate students’ life-long learning interests and ability in the era of knowledge explosion.
- Group Learning
Use project-based learning model to promote the integration of multidisciplinary knowledge in practice. Adopt group learning model to cultivate project management skills, teamwork spirit, and leadership.
