21st century calls for innovations in engineering education

Some 160 education professionals of technical universities from all over the world gathered to exchange knowledge and experience about innovations in engineering education at the European Regional  Meeting of the CDIO network on 25 and 26 January. The theme was “ Inventing tomorrow’s engineering education”.  Aldert Kamp, CEE leader of TU Delft looks back on a very successful conference with many enthusiastic participants. Innovations in engineering education are badly needed to prepare the new generation of students for the rapidly changing changing needs of the 21st century, as was stressed by all four keynote speakers. More attention must be paid to multi- and interdisciplinairy thinking, cross-sectoral collaboration, creativity and innovation skills in both Bachelor and Master education. These subjects are leading themes in the educational research that is done by 3TU. Centre for Engineering Education, the event organiser. Participants intensely worked with these themes in fully booked interactive workshops. The conference took place at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft, member of the CDIO network.

Hide-and-seek: in some landscapes an effective strategy against predatory bacteria
Predators and prey can be found across the tree of life, even among bacteria. Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is one such bacterial predator, and an efficient killer of the prevalent E. coli bacterium. This bacterial predator enters its prey, devours it from the inside while dividing into four or six progenies. The predator bacteria then burst open their prey and start their hunt for the next. B. bacteriovorus is present in soil, and just like its prey E. coli, it can also be found in our gut. In...
