The structure of a Product Design Engineering (PDE) Curriculum has two dimensions., One, the axiological, allows a meaningful division of the areas to be considered by discussing areas such as knowing to know, knowing to be and knowing to do. The other one, the epistemological, defines the content of the axiological areas. This paper describes how this two dimensions can be used to structure a PDE curriculum using the program at Eafit University as a case.
