principles in engineering education significantly change the conventional approach to educational programs development and implementation and, as a result, enhance the competence of the graduates and increase their competitiveness in the international engineering labour market.
The material culminates in describing the CDIO
Initiative, which educates students on how to Conceive, Design, Implement (build) and Operate complex, value-added engineering products, processes and systems in a modern, team-based, global environment thus producing students who are 'ready to engineer' when they graduate.

Liverpool, Leeds, Bristol, Lancaster and Queen's Belfast are among a group of 33 universities worldwide, led by MIT and called CDIO
, that is trying to develop curriculum materials and programmes for what are termed "capstone" projects that spin group and individual work projects out for students.

Although it has met with some press criticism, the consortium, which comprises Sheltam Rail Corporation of South Africa, Kenya's Prime Fuels, Mirambo Holdings, Comazar and the CDIO
Institute for Africa Development Trust, has begun the long process of improving the rail infrastructure and improving its fleet of engines and rolling stock.
