Abstract: Today's engineering industry calls for graduates who have not only well developed technical skills, but also expertise in the fields of communication, interdisciplinary team work and manufacturing. Project based education is one such way in which these skill sets can be nurtured. Although the effectiveness of project based learning in relation to improving the student's technical knowledge, team work and management skills are well documented, the application to the education of manufacturing has yet to be quantified. In a field such as Aeronautical engineering where specialist techniques and processes are utilized, it is a challenge to offer practical hands on experience on every aspect of a project. This paper discusses the role of project based learning and reverse engineering in the education of manufacturing processes.
