473144 An Ontological Approach Towards Curriculum Alignment in Chemical Engineering
In this paper we extend CheEdO ontology to facilitate vertical alignment of the curriculum. The ontology is modelled in Web Ontology Language (OWL) and SWRL language has been employed to create the rules that guide the alignment process.
The updated ontology is validated with a case study taking into account recent developments in UK curricula.
