Abstract: A distinct feature of the civil engineering undergraduate study of Hong Kong Polytechnic University is a major assessment exercise in the form of a problem-based learning (PBL) group project. With the imminent implementation of an outcome-based accreditation assessment by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, student performance on this project can become a significant indicator of learning outcomes. This final year group project can be viewed as the culminating learning experience of the engineering program and the quality of student output can be used as an indicator of the quality of the program as a whole. In this paper, the approach and attitude to the layout, management and assessment of this engineering project are presented. The experience gained in the operation of the project is shared. The evaluation by its key stakeholders, which are students, preceptors and employers, is also highlighted. The results authenticated that this PBL approach could accomplish innovation and entrepreneurship of civil engineering undergraduates.
