Abstract

The growing changes brought about by new concepts and new technologies, such as Industry 4.0, have demanded that educational institutions seek new teaching and learning methodologies, as well as new resources that can contribute to the training of the future engineer. This chapter demonstrates some practices adopted in the process of training the future engineer in a university center in the interior of the state of São Paulo through the use of the CDIO initiative. The results presented confirm the importance and necessity of changes in the teaching and learning process in higher education institutions.
