This paper presents problem-based learning and entrepreneurially minded learning modules focused on fluid power applications in undergraduate Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics courses. This effort focuses on creating awareness and engaging students in the area of fluid power, and challenging them to apply the concepts and theories in class to analyze and design real-world fluid power systems. Therefore, the course modules target both technical and entrepreneurial mindset objectives. Assessment methods and results are detailed and discussed in the paper. Preliminary results indicate positive student learning in the area of fluid power and student practice of entrepreneurial skills.
