This paper describes the existing teaching methodologies in engineering at undergraduate tertiary education. Also, it discuses the effectiveness of implementing reverse engineering as an attractive approach to studying Mechatronics. Practical examples are illustrated to explore the aspects, the practicality and the flexibility of this educational method. Overall, the material presented in this paper can be of crucial benefit to educators who are involved in setting up, designing, delivering and assessing material in inter-disciplinary and integrated engineering courses at tertiary education. ©2003 IEEE.
