For undergraduate students that means engaging in practical, cross-disciplinary project-based work.
We take a practical, project-based approach to teaching and learning. We have made a decision to transiation from traditonal intense and assessment-heavy teaching to a culture where students have space and encouragement, learning to learn for themselves.
This philosophy is supported by 50 of the world’s top technical institutions, including Aston, who have gathered to share best teaching practice in what is known as the CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement & Operate) initiative. Universities we work with on this initiative include Liverpool and Queens (Belfast) in the UK, MIT and Purdue in the United States, Chalmers and the Danish Technical University in Scandinavia and Tsinghua in China.
