A recent report by the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program (ELP) has presented a review of UK approaches to engineering project-based learning (PjBL) and cites the recent developments at UCL as an example of 'highly-regarded best practice'. In particular it uses the Scenarios which have been introduced in the UCL Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering as one of the "UK case study examples of robust, potentially transferable approaches to engineering PjBL".

"Almost without exception, the UK education professionals consulted during this study rated these
developments at UCL as the most carefully designed and successful examples of PBL that they had seen in UK engineering programs."

The report considers a number of implementations of PjBL and Problem Based Learning (PBL) in the UK and highlights a number of examples of best practice a UK institutions.

Within the UCL Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, we have introduced a number of one week scenarios to help students consolidate the knowledge they have acquired during their lecture courses. The scenarios draw on real design problems and encourage group work and communications skills.
