Design of Critical Support Systems to Enhance the Development of 21st Century Expertise in Engineering Students

The engineering department at Fundación Universidad de las Américas, Puebla recently generated new curricula for its undergraduate degrees of chemical, food, and environmental engineering. During this project, they will design courses based on technological advances and extensive research on the learning and cognitive processes that foster skill mastery. They will use formative and summative assessment models to evaluate students’ attainment of 21st Century Skills in order to develop the most effective teaching methodologies.
