Abstract: Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary engineering field that focuses on designing and managing complex systems. Due to the complexity of teaching interdisciplinary engineering concepts, teaching Systems Engineering is difficult. Nowadays, problem-based learning is widely applied in teaching science subject and has been proved to make positive contribution to study science subjects. This article proposes a problem-based learning approach for teaching systems engineering through additive manufacturing process. In this problem, students are required to create a hurdle robot to jump over an obstacle. A robotic car was designed with existing CAD package and a lab manual was designed to guide the students to create the robotic car using 3D (three-dimensional) printers. The robotic car was successfully built by the 3D printer and some standard components. The designed problem will then be used for teaching systems engineering.
