Abstract: A programme has been offered to engineers and product designers with different educational backgrounds and working experiences. Evaluations of the programme have been conducted for five years. In this article, the author first reviews the social changes plus the needs of engineers and designers for continuing education. The structure of the programme is then analysed, along with feedback from the students involved. The author then relates the difficulties that these students encounter in continuing their professional development at universities. According to the student-centred arrangement experience, the author attempts to identify three opportunities to help students continue their education: that is, turning diversity into a resource, turning constraints into flexibility, and turning difficulties into motivation.
