CDIO INITIATIVE™

 

 

The CDIO Initiative was pioneered by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), together with leading engineering schools in USA, Europe, Canada, UK, Africa, Asia and New Zealand, to address the gap between industry needs and the quality of engineering graduates being produced.

 

ROLES OF CDIO

Students are instilled with engineering fundamentals in the context of the whole product life cycle (Conceiving – Designing – Implementing – Operating), and are able to:

  • Master a deeper working knowledge of the technical fundamentals
  • Lead in the creation and operation of new products and systems
  • Understand the importance and strategic value of research work

Taylor’s School of Engineering is the first Malaysian University to be accepted into this prestigious collaboration, joining the ranks of elite institutions like MIT, Stanford University and University of Sydney.
