Engineering Education Using Professional Activity Simulators
The Engineering School is a set of broad-based activities designed to build an individual who, beyond knowledge, is also endowed with a particular way of thinking. In conventional school, knowledge and some technical skills take precedence. The way of thinking is build in a wider context, with well connected and justified activities, correctly connected to reality. A professional framework similar to the real-world professional environment, called the “engineering office" is introduced. In this framework, the technical simulator expands with a professional activities simulator. One describes the components of the professional activities simulator and their role in engineering thinking development. The major advantage of such a simulator is that it naturally integrates skills and knowledge essential through their frequency of use. So, the professional activity simulator put the student closer to structurally justifying details that the school dims and simplifies, sometimes not allowed for, for reasons of approach and methodology.
