    Abstract

    Teaching for an unknown future in rapidly changing times is a challenge with which all educators grapple, not least amongst them engineering educators. The University of Twente’s eponymous educational model addresses this challenge, reflecting their “High Tech - Human Touch” motto by blending the technical needs of the degree with current research in engineering education. In this paper I will present and describe the Twente Educational Model. As illustration of the model in practice I present two exemplar modules in the departments of Advanced Technology and Electrical Engineering. While challenges to the model remain, it represents a mature model of curriculum reform involving project-based learning and adds to the literature on successful engineering education reform.
