Experience gained from a course in Mechatronics Engineering is used to illustrate an approach to the Challenge Line Problem, a problem that relates to a key pedagogical issue that underlies most engineering courses. The issue is how to achieve the optimum balance between two extremes. The first extreme provides students with highly constrained problems in which there is a clearly defined solution. The other extreme provides students with open ended problems that have multiple potential… Expand
