It is often argued that ‘design’ is an (perhaps the) essential characteristic of engineering practice; that, “Design requires unique knowledge, skills, and attitudes common to all engineering disciplines, and it is these attributes that distinguish engineering as a profession.” Hence, it is not surprising to see engineering design identified as a key element of engineering education. There are a range of pedagogical models described, badged with a range of names, that are suggested as approaches to teaching engineering design, for example: project-based learning, problem-based learning, design-based learning, conceive-design-implement-operate (CDIO), problem-oriented project-based learning, social design based learning and project-oriented, design-based learning.

Associate Professor, Deakin University
I'm a professional engineering, including significant professional practice prior to joining Deakin University. I lectured in the management of engineering for 12 years, and following a period in a educational development role, I now hold an academic role in the Faculty office. I have a strong interest in engineering education, frequency domain analysis, data visualisation and social media. | Email: spalm@deakin.edu.au | Twitter: @s_palm... Read More →
