For 30 years of my experience as a university teacher and professional engineer I developed my teaching philosophy, based on the problem-based learning and students’ exposure to real-world problems. This approach helps to develop engineering skills and ensure breadth of the learning beyond the technical aspects of a course, which is important for engineering profession.
