Application of the CDIO Standard for teaching the Architectural Composition Subject with a practice competition about green architecture at Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, Vietnam
University College Cork
Innovative teaching methods is a matter of great concern to many universities in Vietnam, especially in the context that higher education in the world is changing and requiring higher standards of graduates. To meet the needs of businesses and keep up with the sustainable education standards in the world, universities in Vietnam have to make improvements in teaching methods. CDIO is an international standard system for training engineering students that has been applied in many developed countries around the world. In Vietnam, the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HUTECH) has started to implement this method and this has brought positive results. This article introduces the experience of applying CDIO in university teaching around the world, as well as solutions for applying CDIO in teaching the Architectural Composition Subject for architecture students at the Faculty of Architecture and Art. The end result of this is that second-year students groups will complete a competition for architectural design called: "Feeling the natural beauty in the heart of the city - Finding the natural awakening design solutions" by TOTO Information Center organized, inspired by an architect Takaharu Tezuka from Japan. The purpose of this application is to improve teaching quality, improve the curriculum to help students approach practical architectural competitions, and ensure they can meet the requirements of sustainable design after graduation.
