The teaching of Engineering has been the subject of many discussions focusing primarily curricular organizations, with less emphasis on learning methodologies for the development of professional competencies. One of the problems that concern many engineering courses is the lack of motivation of the students in relation to the type of education they receive, with consequences on the student performance and dropout rates. This article encourages the revision of traditional teaching practices and discusses the possibilities of active methodologies in the teaching of engineering. We focus on two active methodologies: Problem Based Learning and Project Based Learning. Both methodologies are derived from teaching conceptions which fulfills many current needs of Engineering courses and may contribute to innovative teaching practices in the context of professional education of the engineering student, overcoming many limitations of traditional teaching models. Index Terms – Active learning methodologies, Problem Based Learning, Project Based Learning, Teaching of Engineering.
