Competence-based education concentrates on learning outcomes instead of meticulously prescribing what to learn. A major problem for many lecturers and programme directors today is the lack of practical methods when it comes up to practical implementation. The paper describes a structured method that helps educators to map which learning outcomes they already address in their teaching. The presented step-by-step procedure is based on the QFD approach. The article leads the reader through all areas of the correlation matrix and exemplifies the procedure by presenting its implementation in an Engineering Design course of a BEng programme in Mechanical Engineering.

Keywords: Competence Development, Assessment Methods In Design Education, Quality Function Deployment (Qfd), Student Learning Outcomes, Design-Build-Test Experiences
