Engineering design is an area of specialisation with the School of Industrial Engineering, Technical University of Catalonia (UPC). One of the courses of this specialisation is Product Engineering and Technical Systems I(EPISTI). In this course, students learn the basics of several tools employed in product engineering design and apply those to the design of products. At the end of the course, students are required to prepare and present a basic project. An example of these projects is included in the paper.In the academic years 2006-07 and 2007-08, more design tools were explored than in previous years. The results of this experience and some future changes are discussed
