Upspeeding technological evolution and globalisation characterise today’s and destiny lives of engineers. it's important for all associations fascinated by engineering schooling to maintain speed and to expect destiny wishes. The herein provided choice of papers effects from the Workshop on worldwide Engineering schooling (GEE’3) which happened at Aachen college of know-how, 18 – 20 October 2000. during this assembly greater than one hundred fifty experts from 25 nations mentioned the subject “Educating the Engineer for the Century”. Which function to characteristic to non-technical skills? the right way to combine moral elements in schooling? will we need to outline overseas criteria in schooling? What approximately quality controls? what's the strength of latest media for wisdom move? the right way to organise lifelong studying for engineers? - those are a few of the questions mentioned between representatives of industries, academic associations, politicians and participants in this assembly. in response to the classes of the workshop, the ebook is subdivided into chapters protecting the parts “Role of the worldwide Engineer in assembly the demanding situations of Society within the Century”, ”Internationality and Interdisciplinarity”, “Engineering schooling in rising Economies”, “European Bachelor and grasp Programmes”, “Developing own abilities to be a world Engineer”. 3 chapters care for winning perform in engineering schooling protecting the themes “Programmes, Curricula and Evaluation”, “Educational Concepts”, and “University-Industry Partnership, layout Projects”.

Subsequently new university workflow and organisation structures are to be developed including new methods of teaching. The tools of operating cost analysis and the financing methods for the "new" Campus University are also to be adapted to the new goals. Finally training-methods and approaches to Further Education for qualified people need to be integrated into the Campus University consistently based on a demand analysis. 1. INTRODUCTION Information has become the most important resource in all areas of our lives.

From that moment on they automatically become UNITECH Alumni. In the face of present developments concerning accreditation of degrees such as the Bologna declaration and the bachelor/masters discussion in general, the creation of a formal degree has not been given first priority. The understanding is that the important outcome of having completed the UNITECH programme is a better qualification for careers in industry and not a formally accredited degree. Major investments and efforts are however taken in order to quickly achieve a high brand recognition of the "UNITECH-degree", especially among corporate and academic partners.

Benchmarking and exchanges of experience. g. between corporate partners, is important. Most additions to the programme involve both sides, academia and industry. Therefore each side has to trust the other that they are both capable and willing to take their part of the responsibility and actions. A good example is the student selection process. It takes place in two steps: an academic selection with focus on academic excellence, executed by the partner universities and a selection done by corporate partners which emphasis people and leadership skills.
