This paper reports on the implementation of a new project based
design course at first year level of an engineering degree programme. The
project, carried out in groups of six, uses the design and construction of a
“Mangonel”, or catapult, as its primary task. The detail of the course, the
learning outcomes, and the resource overhead are presented as well as a
discussion on the initial results from the programme.
