Abstract: In the article, the author reviews the successes and limitations of a programme for designers and engineers to further their education. In order to accommodate the diverse backgrounds and needs of these part-time students, the author offers suggestions in the article on student-centred arrangements in terms of programme objectives, learning activities, the learning environment and channels of communication between students and teaching and administrative staff. Effectively, student-centred education relates to three levels of work, namely: understanding students’ backgrounds; respecting what students need; and focusing on students’ needs. Such a student-centred focus also entails more flexible timetable arrangements in the learning environment, as well as establishing regular and informal channels of communication.
