    Changing Mindsets, Improving Creativity and Innovation in Engineering Education2011In: Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Engineering and Product Design Education E&PDE11 / [ed] Kovacevic, Ahmed, Ion, William, McMahon, Chris, Buck, Lyndon and Hogarth, Peter, 2011, 121-126 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Universities need to reconfigure and rethink existing engineering beliefs in order to keep promoting students that can target and capitalize on tomorrow’s opportunities. This put pressure on promoting the best possible Engineering Education, which means continuant upgrades and revisions to existing curricula’s and faculties’ pedagogical methods and processes. This paper summarizes the experiences and lessons learned from a nationwide initiative to rethink and redesign existing engineering programs towards more traceable innovative practices. The Swedish Product Innovation Engineering Program (PIEp) and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in particular have a long tradition of successful exchanges involving research and education. PIEp is committed to a system change towards innovation and entrepreneurship in institutes of higher education and research. From PIEp an organized network of senior researchers, PhD students, lecturers and students is seen as the seed for this change. Activities are conducted in three areas; research in product innovation, education for product innovation and industrial collaboration for product innovation. Turning away from one-timer and mere embryonic attempts, PIEp visions a systems shift through long term dedication to influence higher engineering education curricula design. KTH is currently performing a revision of all engineering program to fit the European Bologna higher education restructuring process. Encompassing both undergraduate and master level studies, the integration of engineering syllabus imperatives strive to converge with the internationally recognized CDIO standards and the new Swedish national degree specifications. The paper aims to summarize the initiative provided between PIEp, KTH and Stanford to stimulate Swedish Engineering faculty to embrace methods and tools for integrating creativity and innovation. Ultimately, building on the long experiences of successful workshops held by PIEp and KTH the overall ambition is to establish a change in mindsets, and by so influencing key participants to directly leave endurable footprints onto their respective Swedish Engineering Education Program. The paper has a descriptive character blending ‘best-of-both-worlds’ concepts as it reveals how a nationwide initiative has set up a learning hub overseas together with Stanford University. Utilizing this source of entrepreneurial and inspiring environment the ambition is to equip Swedish faculty with experiences, success stories, lessons learned, personal opinions, to provoke and challenge existing program and curricula design. In summary, the full paper version entails the set-up, reflections and actions outline by Swedish university representatives to address implementation of more transferability between innovation characteristics in respective education programs.

    Collaborative Learning in Mechatronics with Globally Distributed Teams2003In: International journal of engineering education, ISSN 0949-149X, Vol. 19, no 4, 569-574 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of mechatronics has been taught at the Mechatronics Lab, Royal Institute Of Technology (KTH) since 1984. The educational model is based on the four didactical questions: the questions of identity, legitimacy, selection and communication; and as a result there are strong intentions of communicating the subject of mechatronics in an interactive fashion, with an exemplifying selection. Due to the emerging issue of globalisation an attempt has been made to internationalise the education in mechatronics, and this article aims at investigating the possibilities of expanding the questions of selection and communication to also enrol the added aspects of international collaborative learning in mechatronics. Among the conclusions are, besides enhanced motivation for the students, signs of improved disciplinary learning, improved communicational skills and an education which better prepares students for future careers and work in a global area.

    Mechatronics: the Evolution of an Academic Discipline in Engineering Education2005In: Mechatronics (Oxford), ISSN 0957-4158, E-ISSN 1873-4006, Vol. 15, no 2, 179-192 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     In a didactic approach to mechatronics, the academic subject can be defined according to four dimensions: identity, legitimacy, selection and communication. A result of defining the legitimacy of mechatronics as functional is that the ultimate identity can be viewed as thematic. Following this, a model is proposed to describe the evolution of mechatronics, from a disciplinary identity towards a thematic. The move from a disciplinary identity to a thematic is divided into six stages, each represented by a characteristic view and academic practice of the subject. To further illustrate this evolutional process examples from various universities in northern Europe are given. The universities analysed for this purpose presents examples for stages 3-5 in the model; stages represented by a change in courses (stage 3), a change in curricula (stage 4) and by a change in organization (stage 5).

    PIEp: Product Innovation Engineering Program2007In: Proceedings of ICED 2007, the 16th International Conference on Engineering Design, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the establishment of a large research, education and development program in the area of innovation engineering, the Product Innovation Engineering Program, PIEp. The program is intended as a network of researchers, educators and students in innovation with the purpose of creating a systematic shift toward innovation and entrepreneurship in institutes of higher education and research. The initial PIEp consortium consists of: Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, Umeå Institute of Design at Umeå University, International Business School and School of Engineering at Jönköping University, Center for Technology and Health, Sweden and is coordinated by the School of Industrial Technology and Management at the Royal Institute of Technology. PIEp is organized in five activity fields, ranging from research in innovation to product- and business development through education in innovation. The organization is based on a model where the five fields generate knowledge and feed back knowledge and experiences to the other fields. The program is initially funded by the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems, VINNOVA, Innovationsbron AB (a Swedish organization that supports business development through incubators and seed capital), the collaborating universities and a number of private sponsors. The program was launched in late 2006 and is intended to run for ten years. The first research projects and educational activities have started, and the PIEp program is now inviting more national and international partners.

    Learning product design through globally distributed teams: A way to enhance innovation capabilities in mechatronics2010In: Journal of Medical Devices, ISSN 1932-6181, E-ISSN 1932-619X, Vol. 4, no 2, 1-1 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Creating product innovations involves the need to understand the social context in which the innovation is created and ultimately the context in which it is to be used. The use of globally distributed teams (GDTs) in engineering education to understand and enhance the social and technological interaction could catalyze the process of creating innovation. This paper proposes a framework for the analysis and support of the GDT setting. The proposed framework builds on the standardized open system interconnection model for network communication consisting of seven interconnected layers. As it has been suggested in prior studies, a successful collaboration in a GDT relies on several critical factors that build on each other. Organizing and supporting these factors in an interconnected layered scheme could better clarify the interaction between social and technological aspects. A case study of a student medical device project is analyzed using the proposed framework. The project involved students from University of Minnesota, MN and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.
