Methodology of Forming Engineering Competencies in Students Based on Innovative Approach
Keywords:Project based learning, challenge-based education, innovation competences, Design Thinking, multidisciplinary education
This study discusses innovation competences development in these courses with the aim of understanding how to better design educational strategies to improve them. Through content analysis, we compare the outcomes of two groups of Telecom Engineering students undergoing a capstone course following a classical product development project approach and a challenge-based course using Design Thinking. Results show that both course types contribute to developing innovation competences. Nevertheless, depending on the chosen pedagogy some competences are developed further.
