Abstract: Systems engineering integrating interdisciplinary engineering team to design and manage complex engineering design projects. Systems engineering knowledge could best be delivered by incorporating the activities in the systems engineering V development lifecycle in the learning process. However, systems engineering concepts are hard to form a solid identifiable personal experience even for professional engineers. This article discusses the project design and assessment structure in a systems engineering course to facilitate the learning process. The 3D printing process is organised as a learning resource for students to verify their system design in a demonstrable format. Students are required to go through stages of the V development lifecycle while designing and developing a hurdle robot as the engineering design outcome. Students are allocated into groups tried to design and produce different hurdle robots with the support of extra learning resources in the learning management system. The student groups that follow closely the V model lifecycle seem to settle down with the final designs quickly. This proves that the environment has facilitated learning of the V development lifecycle process. With the support of 3D printing technology, students are able to test and verify what they have designed so that they can experience the systems engineering core activities.
