The academic session 2004/05 saw the first student cohort to encounter a module taught using Problem Based Learning (PBL) in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at UCL. Although common in the education of Medical students and Social Scientists, this form of teaching has rarely been used in Engineering. In this collaborative project PBL has been introduced systematically to a third year course unit following pilots that had been conducted over the previous two years. This form of teaching removes the 'lecturing' element and replaces it with facilitated problems tackled by small groups. One particular aim is to foster the growth of key skills including problem solving, critical thinking, group work and communication skills that have been identified by industry as weak in many graduates.
