The type of transversal competences and skills to be acquired by EE students is in open debate. It is argued in this paper that beyond core technical skills and soft skills, the competences of Conceiving, Designing, Implementing and Operating Circuits and Systems are key for a comprehensive electrical engineering education. CAS-centric learning activities and methodologies oriented to expose the student to such skills are discussed. This description is carried out both at curriculum architecture level as well as at course level, in the framework of the CDIO approach, an engineering education methodology which considers design-oriented analysis techniques included in an integral project-based learning methodology.
