A Case study for Problem-based Learning Course in Environmental Engineering Program Hyun-sang Shin Dept. of Environmental Engineering, Seoul National University of Science and Technology, Seoul, 139-743, Republic of KoreaThe purpose of this study was to identify the effect of problem-based learning(PBL) inEnvironmental Engineering program. Participants were 81 undergraduate students whoenrolled in 'Environmental Instruments Analysis' course. First, based on problem-basedlearning model, PBL procedures of the course were introduced. Second, PBL scenarios anddesign principles were provided. Third, the learning effects of PBL instruction on students'teamwork, lifelong learning ability and problem-solving ability are analyzed. Teaching tips forpromoting students' teamwork, lifelong-learning ability and problem-solving ability in PBL wereprovided.
