Academic Projects and Competitions

Project-based learning is a widely recognized and effective teaching approach for students of all abilities. Project-based learning also develops higher-order inquiry and problem-solving skills and helps students gain a greater and deeper understanding of scientific and mathematical principles in an applied manner. The competitive elements of some project-based learning activities also provide an important additional dimension to teaching and learning. Within the correct context, competition engages and motivates students and drives innovation, a vital requirement for any engineer or product designer.
