Webinar: Iron Range Engineering Project Based Learning Model

by, Ronald Ulseth and Bart Johnson, Iron Range Engineering Programme and Itasca Community College, U.S.A


24.06.2015 kl. 13.00 - 14.00



A new PBL model started in 2010 in Minnesota, United States. The PBL model is upper-division (the last two years of four-year bachelor’s of engineering degree). Entering students are graduates of Minnesota’s community colleges. The Aalborg PBL model served as an inspiration for the program’s development. Unique attributes of the program include industry clients, semester-long projects, emphasis on development of self-regulated learning abilities, dedicated project rooms, technical competence learned in one-credit, small (3-4 student) groups with one academic staff called learning competencies, and an emphasis on continuous improvement. The program has earned ABET accreditation. Seventy-five students have graduated and are employed as engineering professionals.
