Abstract [en]

In this paper, it is attempted to develop a model of work integrated learning for undergraduate engineering students in relation to the international CDIO-initiative1 standard 7 (Integrated Learning Experiences) and 8 (Active Learning). The model is based on an organized collaboration with a number of industrial partners in the surrounding geographic region. As a part of the collaboration, each participating student is guaranteed an internship at a chosen company during two summer periods. In the model, company based projects are integrated with some of the study program courses.Moreover, the participating students are given a possibility to perform their final thesis at the chosen company. The evaluation of the model shows that that the company based projects promote interdisciplinary learning as well as fostering system building skills and personal communication skills. Moreover, the developed learning model supports the expected learning outcomes, especially with regards to interpersonal skills, teamwork and communication. Moreover, it is discussed the roleof cultural- social perspective and peer-learning in enhancing the developed learning model from apedagogical point of view.
