The Conceiving-Designing-Implementing-Operating (CDIO) initiative is a worldwide organization with members from over 120 institutions for higher education, and it provides an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineers. This paper compares the CDIO standards and syllabus to the accreditation criteria of Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea, ABEEK to identify similarities and differences and to find points of improvement for ABEEK criteria. It is found that the basic concepts of ABEEK criteria correlates well with those of CDIO standards, while the CDIO standards and syllabus provide more detailed and well-defined guidelines for engineering programs. Finally, some discussions are presented on the differences between the two educational models, a voluntary-based CDIO model and an accreditation-based ABEEK model.
