CURRENT TRENDS

  • Increasing population of non-traditional students

  • Students have different objectives

    • degree

    • certificate

    • professional development

  • Students have wide variety of backgrounds

    • note that we offer courses in over 60 locations

  • Students have different “needs” to know

    • one topic may be more important now than another

  • Students may need to know “parts” from different courses to support them professionally

  • Students may have different learning styles and abilities

    • some can learn specific material faster than others


Current trends

In short, there is a shift from seeking degrees to seeking “Learning”

“Learning” encompasses:

  • Training

  • Education

  • Performance Mentoring

  • DEGREE STRUCTURE

  • Each institution guarantees a specific engineering specialization offered in English in a given semester

  • Students must take specialization semesters at two institutions (24 credit hours)

  • Students must do comprehensive project at any of the institutions (6 credit hours)

  • ODU will award Master of Engineering to any student who does a specialization semester at ODU

  • In addition to any M.Sc. Degree awarded by partner institutions

  • Thus, in some cases, students will be awarded both a U.S. and European degree
