Problem-based learning (PBL) is getting wide acceptance among the academia in institution of higher learning. PBL is a student centred approached in teaching and learning. “Project Oriented” learning is widely used in teaching design-based courses. On the other hand Problem-Based Learning establish from medical schools. Looking at both approaches in teaching and learning, there seems to be some similarities. This paper describes author’s personal experience in teaching design courses by “project-oriented (POL)” or project-based learning at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University Technology Malaysia. The comparisons between these approaches are described. Similarities and differences of both teaching approaches are discussed. The author’s experienced in implementing this teaching technique provides some enlightening experience to be shared.
