Abstract

Product development is one of the most complex and important stages in the value creation chain. The objective of the university education of mechanical engineers is to impart the complex knowledge necessary for efficient product development in an industrial environment and to teach the students the key abilities required for their professional life. Engineers have to be “team players”, they have to be skilled in technical know-how and business management and they have to be capable of reaching decisions and implement them. In order to meet these requirements in the university education, KaLeP (Karlsruhe Education Model for Product Development) was developed at the IPEK (Institute for Product Development, University of Karlsruhe).

Keywords: education, product development, development process, integrated product development
