The project management discipline is expanding within many engineering activities. This discipline can facilitate strivings toward successful accomplishment of an engineering project. Therefore, many academic institutes teach the “project management†program. This study presents a novel approach that educates engineering students to become successful project managers based on contextual learning. This approach embeds a practical project within the project management program. The student has to implement the academic know-how into the embedded project. The study utilizes a quantitative tool to measure the students’ response to the approach. The results indicate that the students were satisfied with the approach.
