Program curriculum development is a critical part of ensuring that universities fulfill their mission. This process can be done in a systematic manner. The paper presents a curriculum development model that uses quantitative tools to map the needs of students and industry to the academic programs offered by universities. The model is based on the 7 step Taba model. The first two steps, “Diagnosis of Needs” and “Formulation of objectives” are discussed in this paper, along with a case study. Quality function deployment and Analytic hierarchical Process tools enable a model that is responsive to change and provides a highly defined path to identifying and evaluating program learning objectives.
