Interdisciplinary team-based projects, aimed at solving real engineering problems, provide a rich learning environment. Students develop technical and transversal competencies, they participate in serious team work and they experience to a certain extent what it is to be an engineering professional. As project approaches are a form of active learning that is aligned with the requirements of the Bologna process, projects are becoming a widely accepted part of engineering degree programmes.

The Department of Production and Systems of the University of Minho, the Research Centre for Education of the University of Minho and the Curriculum Development Working Group of SEFI – the European Society for Engineering Education – aim to join teachers, researchers on Engineering Education, deans of Engineering Schools and professionals concerned with Engineering Education, to enhance Project Approaches in Engineering Education through workshops and discussion of current practice and research.

The Symposium is a parallel event of the CIDUI Conference, whose organising committee has been very kind to make the second edition of PAEE possible in Barcelona.

The main language of the Conference is English. Contributions can be submitted in Spanish and Portuguese as well. Presentations can be given in English, Portuguese and Spanish. Plenary sessions will be in English.

The Symposium takes place in Barcelona at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.
