Onmaster level engineering specialty competences areexpanded, additionally knowledge in engineering pedagogyis acquired. On doctoral level implicit competences of anengineering educator are provided. Entrance qualificationsfor all levels have been clearly defined. The result of theprocess is to graduate educators with certified degrees andspecific competencies which certify them as qualifiedteachers in technical subjects. The heart of the approach iscomplex of curricula designed to overcome the differencebetween entrance level and graduation qualification, beingoriented on learning outcomes.
