The ALIEN PBL intervention, which includes a PBL learning methodology supported by physical labs and a digital learning environment, aims to reach 1.000 students at 17 institutions in 10 countries, namely Malaysia, Nepal, Vietnam, Pakistan, Cambodia, Portugal, Estonia, Bulgaria, the UK, and Greece.

Physical labs are being established at 12 partner sites in Malaysia, Nepal, Vietnam, Pakistan, and Cambodia.

The proposed PBL methodology will be deployed in a number of engineering courses, demonstrating its broad applicability. Courses include:

  • Requirements engineering
  • Fundamentals of software engineering
  • Multimedia design
  • Computer networks
  • Combined engineering projects
  • System analysis and design
  • Computer-aided measuring equipment
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic drives
  • Automatic control systems
  • Sensors in mechatronics
  • Energy efficiency
  • Renewable energy sources
  • Parallel computing
  • Mobile computing
  • Multimedia
  • Software engineering
  • Soil mechanics
  • Technology in edcucation
  • Game design
  • And more …

These courses are part of formal engineering curricula in programs that include Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Information Systems, Computer Science, and others.
