This paper describes two approaches to teaching engaging creative engineering design classes. Both of these classes have evolved over many years using feedback from annual class reviews. One is the computer-aided design class, CAD-EX, at the University of Tokushima (UT) in Japan, and the other is the introductory design and manufacturing class, 2.007, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the USA. Comparing these two classes conducted in two difference countries, this paper discusses how we created learning environments that engage students in a variety of design-related activities.
