Abstract

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a powerful tool for teaching that helps students to get the best out of their effort in terms of the learning results obtained, even more in studies like university degree studies in engineering. A way of getting even more of this is by means of the adaptation of methodologies from different knowledge areas, because this allows the launch of innovative ways of working with certain guarantees of success from the very first moment, and at the same time to integrate skills from different fields within a shared context. Besides, it helps to put to practice some transversal competences. Here a case is shown of the successful adaptation of the methodology of Systems of Layouts, as used in Graphic Design, to a University Degree of Engineering in Industrial Design and Product Development.
