The technology has been developed on a broad, integrative theoretical basis and on the basis of an international and national studies which are related to the preparation of future engineers. The outlined components of the model - goal setting, learning content, teaching and learning activities, resources and diagnostics are based on a survey of teachers, employers and students on the ability to create the necessary professional competencies.
