The paper describes the curricula of two new international programs in production engineering-one a tri-national master of science in "industrial design and manufacturing" (IDM) program and the other an international bachelor of science program. The IDM master's program has been developed at the University of Dortmund in cooperation with the University of Twente in the Netherlands. Since 2004, the third partner in the IDM program is the University of Strathclyde in the UK. The IDM program provides an integrated, holistic, and internationally oriented graduate education in mechanical engineering that keeps the balance between theory and practice. For the development of the bachelor's program, the pilot project EPRODE (European Production Engineer) was initiated in 2003. It has been granted by the European Union (EU) program Leonardo da Vinci and aims at specifying a standardized European curriculum. Partners of EPRODE are institutes from universities and the industry sector in Sweden, Germany, Poland, and Spain.
