The importance of incorporating design skills in undergraduate engineering programs is widely recognized. Demonstrating that students have been imbued with those skills is however, often poorly done with design not being well developed throughout a degree program. The paper outlines the processes adopted at the University of Tasmania to develop design skills and how the attainment of those skills is evaluated. A case study involving the development and refinement of a new multi-disciplinary design unit Experimental Design and Analysis is provided as an example of how to achieve good design learning outcomes
