Project-Based Curriculum (PBC) is considered one of the most powerful methods in the engineering education where each course or courses-cluster is assigned a design project which considers a series of inter-related concepts that have been shown theoretically for the students. Using this approach, the student will gain the required knowledge in an atmosphere of groups of teams where students can experience and learn the most needed inquiry, research tools and skills, teamwork skills, leadership skills, accountability, communication skills, interdisciplinary experience, curiosity, planning skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. In this article, an undergraduate design experience in digital logic design course of special purpose arithmetic logic unit using Multisim, Y-0010/0020 Experiment Sets and Ulti-Board Kit is presented as an integral part of several electrical engineering courses throughout the curriculum at King Faisal University. The project was very beneficial in assessing the student outcomes a, c, d, e and k which introduced by ABET accreditation criteria.
