Abstract

MATI Montreal is a new inter-faculty research center, which focuses on the development of methodologies, tools and knowledge for the use and integration of information and communication technologies in sciences, engineering and management educational programs. Multidisciplinary projects at MATI Montreal are designed for strategic project-based teaching aiming at the collaborative development of customized interdisciplinary courses, the systematic involvement of industrial partners to drive and co-supervise student projects, and thus allowing students to experience a complete product development process. This paper describes the instated pedagogic structure and discusses the social and collaborative skills that the students developed within such a learning framework.
