Project Based Learning: Developing Transfer Skills in Environmental Engineering Microbiology

Accredited environmental engineering decrees require graduates to be able to apply their knowledge of the sciences to concepts of professional practice and design. This transferable skill of relating what you learn in one setting to another situation is vital for the engineering profession. A course project of designing a professional poster was implemented to enhance student mastery in Environmental Engineering Microbiology while also developing transferable skills. Students completed anonymous surveys using Likert scale questions and qualitative measures to examining the extent to which the course project helped broaden student understanding.
