Summary The School of Engineering at Deakin University (SOE-DU) is committed to provide authentic and unique learning experiences to students. Over the last five years, SOE-DU has undertaken a study to develop a unique teaching and learning model. The proposed model was based on the Project- Oriented Design Based Learning (PODBL) philosophy which is unique within Australia and in the world. Fundamentally, the framework balances project-driven pedagogy with a design-focused practice in response to industry needs. This paper focuses on the development of PODBL and articulating how it helps nurture creative and industry-ready professional engineers.
