In practice, applying life cycle engineering in product design and development requires an integrated approach, because of the many stakeholders and variables (e.g. cost, environmental impact, energy, safety, quality) involved in a complete product life cycle. In educating young engineers, the same integrated approach should be strived for, because a mono disciplinary approach is often less effective. Therefor, direct application of the theory in practical cases is necessary. This paper describes experiences with effective LCE education using the advantages of project-led education. This is illustrated by describing LCE relevant courses and evaluation of graduation assignments including successful integration of LCE elements.
