Descripción
In this study, an integrative PBL approach is presented. It is used in two courses devoted to the biomedical engineering field, namely ?Bioengineering Design? and ?MedTech?, included in the Master?s Degree in Industrial Engineering and in the Master?s Degree in Engineering Management, respectively, both at the ETSI Industriales from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. These courses follow a framework completely aligned with the spirit of the International CDIO Initiative. Students from both courses collaborate in teams and live through the complete project life cycle of innovative medical devices. The PBL approach applied is aimed to allow students to learn basic PM skills such as technical, business, and human ones. From the beginning of the courses, students are provided with specific knowledge, tools, and exercises to improve their capabilities for building strong teams and achieving their project goals. By integrating PM deliverables (scope, time, cost, risk, quality and communication management) with team development strategies (team agreement, personality identification, competencies assessment, teambuilding, roles definition, and personal interviews) and specific soft skills workshops it has been possible to provide an effective learning experience for improving students PM skills. Main results, difficulties, benefits, and conclusions of the experience are presented in this work as well as lessons learned for the continuous improvement for the next courses.
