Engineering practice employs design teams. In an experiential learning process the separate learning cycles of team members are linked. Capable designers have to be trained at universities. The paper focuses on civil engineering design education at Delft University of Technology. The CE design projects provide a major input in the training of students, but two main concerns have been identified. First, the learning environment of projects and courses differ. Second, learning a well-defined design approach is not sufficient to become a successful designer. To gather insight in the activities of students in their projects, a small pilot research project was set up.
