© 2015 TEMPUS Publications. A project-based learning approach is proposed and tested in this study to explore its feasibility and the effectiveness of such a pedagogical framework to guide instructors and learners in an interdisciplinary learning context. Objective data from summative evaluations were collected to understand students' performance and attitude in their project-based learning experiences, as well as to explore whether the interdisciplinary project-based learning approach improves students' abilities to perform project work. The results of this study showed that students did improve their ability to work on group projects through the engagement and experience of this interdisciplinary PBL. Also, students performed well on their final projects, for the instructors were satisfied with their group project performances. Students also expressed positive attitudes toward the interdisciplinary PB Lapproach as an effective instructional strategy. Based on the findings of this study, discussion and recommendations are provided on future issues in engineering education, both for practical application as well as research.
