Abstract [en]

Engineering education offer traditionally problem-based courses and projects with the intention to prepare the students for future carriers. In this article we present an exploratory study of a transnational collaborative project involving students in masters programs in Mechatronics and Mechanical Engineering at KTH Sweden and Stanford University, California USA. The empirical data indicate improved interdisciplinary learning and increased knowledge and skills in related areas. Somewhat counter-intuitive we found that the problems posed by differences in time and space can be apprehended as learning opportunities, however under proper guidance of the teacher.
