COORDINATION PRACTICE IN THE NEW SUBJECT CHEMISTRY FOR ENGINEERING

European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) makes teaching and learning in higher education more transparent across Europe and facilitates the recognition of all studies. The system allows for the transfer of learning experiences between different institutions, greater student mobility and more flexible routes to gain degrees. It also aids curriculum design and quality assurance.

In the adaptation to the new degrees, including the use of the ECTS, a new subject has been introduced in the studies of engineering: Chemistry, which is shared in the industrial, electricity and chemical engineering degrees. The work here described involves the coordination of twenty professors in order to perform and organise the most adequate content, themes, material, theory, problems, practice, tutorials and seminars. Matters treated were inorganic and organic chemistry and acid-base, complexation, solubility and redox equilibria. In this coordination step, the estimation of the number of hours used by the students in Chemistry is also considered, in order to transform them in the number of ECTS.

This work has been supported by a project from USE (Unitat de Suport Educatiu, Universitat Jaume I).
