MIT aerospace engineering program — CDIO mapping

Tags: CDIO, curriculum map

The interactive map below is the visual accompaniment to our paper Mapping the CDIO Curriculum with Network Models. This paper was presented at the 13th International CDIO Conference in Calgary. Check out our presentation slides.

Mouse-over and click on the nodes to explore the mapping between CDIO skills and courses.

Visualize CDIO matrices as an interactive map

To generate the interactive visualization described in the paper (and shown above), we used the Rhumbl tool (it's free):

  1. We downloaded the Accreditation Excel template from the Rhumbl Engine, and modified it to fit the CDIO framework. Take a look at the modified template.
  2. We filled in the template with the MIT Aerospace Engineering CDIO data. We then uploaded it to the Rhumbl tool to make the interactive map as shown above. Remember to switch coloring to manual.
