Engineering Education Based on Engineering Change


Article Preview

The authors of the article carried out the analysis of the teaching need for the subject of engineering change at Vilnius Gediminas Technical University. The conducted investigation was based on evaluating the situation of the engineering change process and on innovative knowledge in the field. The examination of literature sources and the results of expert evaluation pointed out a number of activities to support the engineering change process. The activities must be provided with relevant innovative knowledge. Recent engineering changes are related to product and process innovations when the new functions and purposes of product development can be, in many cases, achieved through designing mechatronic systems and introducing new materials to improve the product. Engineering change management is important for designing and producing products. For this reason, the modules of study programmes in this particular field give more knowledge and abilities for the students.
