Abstract This article shares my experiences with the project-based methodology of teaching the same material that a standard text in robotics would teach and will comparatively elaborate the improvement observed in the group of students involved. Other than the understanding of the course material, the use of project-based learning methodology has shown a great increase in motivation and focus on the subject in the students towards the engineering education. The performance improvement is presented in this work as a comparison with respect to underlying program educational outcomes between the previous years of teaching in conventional way, with past two years of experience using the projectbased approach. The work includes appropriate rubrics involved in evaluating the subject. While the work is seemingly undergraduate teaching exercise, it has proven so far to have very positive impact on the industrial research project performed by the author.
