The automotive market shows rapid, sometimes disruptive innovations. Curriculum innovation in the professional higher education, such as the HAN1 Automotive Institute, could be an adequate response to changing labour market requirements.

Most research done on the cooperation between professional practice and professional higher education, carries an educational perspective. Enriching the curriculum design with state-of-the-art themes, and using insight in rationalities of professionals, opens a new perspective to align education and practice.

This paper elaborates on this alignment by addressing the design of an adaptive curriculum in the sixth out of eight semesters of the Automotive Institute bachelor curriculum, complying labour market requirements.
