Case study projects can be used as an active learning tool for expanding students’ knowledge beyond classroom discussion. A required course taken by EE (Electrical Engineering) and CS (Computer Science) students at the University of Portland provides an excellent environment for assessing students’ ability to function on multidisciplinary teams as specified in the ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission Student Outcome (d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams. This paper presents an experience of using a team-based case study project as an active learning tool in the EE and CS required course for assessing the attainment of this student outcome. The performance indicators clearly demonstrate that the ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission Student Outcome (d) is successfully attained.
