Real Airplane Cockpit Development Applied to Engineering Education: A Project Based Learning Approach Chapter Conference Paper uri icon


  • Engineering education, the process of teaching knowledge and principles to the professional practice of engineering, can be done by resorting to several methodologies. Project Based Learning is a teaching method that allows students to get knowledge and skills by developing and solving complex problems or challenges, supported by a supervisor. In the presented work, a real airplane cockpit development is used as a case study for Mechanical, Mechatronics, Electrical, and Computer Science courses. Students are encouraged to develop modules to be applied in the cockpit and further integrated with other ones.
  • This work has been supported by FCT - Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia within the Project Scope: UIDB/05757/2020.
