Professional skills in international multidisciplinary teams
Rights accessOpen Access
The international engineering education programs must guarantee that a graduate possesses the attributes to work effectively within a global environment. It is therefore necessary to establish the competencies required for this effective working within an international context. The International Design Project Semester (IDPS) program integrates technical knowledge and professional engineering skills from a point of view of multidisciplinary and international teams. The preliminary results shows that it is possible to integrate international students in the classroom using the model role playing (each team has his own role and it is necessary share and collaborate with other teams) and next, observe the acquisition of skills of the engineering students (creative thinking, interact with others, dealing with conflicts, positive attitude).
