Abstract

Today's technological, economic and social challenges force higher educational institutions to promote interdisciplinary reflection in order to help students understand challenging problems and frame feasible solutions. In engineering education, students need to go beyond technological knowledge and be motivated towards interdisciplinary and complex management education that will prepare them to become innovative engineer managers. The current paper reports on the pedagogical approaches used to prepare, develop and improve the delivery of ENMA-550 Product Development Process (PDP) graduate interdisciplinary course. The suggestions of the paper are expected to assist educators and practitioners to acquire the necessary knowledge on interdisciplinary course development and teaching in order to become interdisciplinary teachers.
