This paper describes engineering education achievements performed by 4th year synthesis class. Since its inauguration in April 1997 the Kochi University of Technology has overseen nine years of engineering education and the objectives of the synthesis class are based on this experience. Knowledge of design and manufacturing is considered to be as important as the basic sciences of mathematics and physics for mechanical engineering, and laboratory experience provides an active learning opportunity alongside classroom learning. As a capstone learning course, student teams in our laboratory have designed and manufactured hand-made electric vehicles and a robot. Their experiences are reported here.
