The FME is also one of the most active faculties in teaching and learning innovation. Since 2009, the FME has been one of the first pioneers in adopting CDIO approach for curricular innovation. With the success of this pilot project, the CDIO approach has been applied to all education programs at the HCMUT since 2014. CDIO initiative is an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineers. The framework provides students with an education emphasizing on engineering fundamental elements in the context of Conceiving — Designing — Implementing — Operating (CDIO) real-world systems and products. The FME has certified and implemented ISO 9001:2008 since 2015.
