This case study has been developed as part of the Engineering Subject Centre Teaching Awards 2005-2006, from data gathered through a demonstration of the teaching and learning materials available, interviews with the tutor and a student focus group. The report examines a group of final year students from Bournemouth University during term two of the Design Engineering Unit, and how they respond to a problem based learning approach. Students work collaboratively to solve real life design problems in engineering, focussed on digital and control systems.
