Learning to be a professional engineer should involve more than lectures, lab classes and solving equations.  Engineers work in creative teams to design and make articles, devices and processes. They learn to do this best by learning actively, through projects, problem-solving, making and occasionally failing.

Professor Goodhew is an advocate of active learning techniques, problem-based learning and other student-centred approaches.  In this book he de-mystifies a variety of approaches to teaching engineering and explains how to upgrade the teaching of engineering subjects without throwing away the necessary rigour.
