  • For the purpose of conformity to the "graduate attributes" defined by Washington Accord, of which MÜDEK is a signatory, the concept of "Complex problem" is integrated to items (i), (iv) and (v), and  some new dimensions are added to items (vii), (ix) and (x) of the subcriterion 3.1 of Criterion 3.
  • Criterion 10. Discipline Specific Criteria:
    • "Forest and Forest Industry Engineering" criteria accepted as a separate document on 23.07.2012 are integrated to the updated document,
    • Criteria for "Energy Systems Engineering", "Mechatronics Engineering", and "Automotive Engineering" developed by an intense constituent participation 2014 are are integrated to the updated document,
    • Criteria for "Food Engineering" are updated to accommodate feedbacks coming from contituents.
  • Some editorial improvements are introduced in several locations of the document in order to obtain a clearer writing and a better comprehension.
