Abstract Engineering education is often presented as frameworks made up of intended competences based on product lifecycle step models. Such are the Conceiving-Designing Implementing-Operating(CDIO) syllabus and the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF). In this article we analyze the correlation between the expert created competences implemented in these models and the job market requirement qualifications represented as topics extracted with probabilistic topic models.
