Abstract: 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.
