This study presents a teaching methodology developed through a 3-year-long iterative-study in order to incorporate hands-on experiences in engineering courses and expose sophomore students to engineering design. Sophomore engineering technology students enrolled in a 200-level Computer Aided Design course participated in this study. An innovative Project-Based-Learning (PBL) approach with an embedded Agile Project Management (APM) is implemented to promote skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and self-management. These are skills that students need to have to succeed in senior capstone projects or in professional practice. APM is used to respond to students’ struggles with PBL’s project management. APM is an iterative approach with ability to respond to issues as they arise throughout the course of the project. In this approach, students performed a series of agile rituals such as showcases, retrospectives, stand-up meetings and iteration reviews.
