Since the earliest Kansei works saw the light now more than 30 years ago; the Kansei has boomed exponentially. Because of many and various achieved business successes by different working groups as well as the methodology geographical dispersion throughout the world. Multi-faceted Kansei has been developed for the last 20 years in a very wide and varied way.

The Kansei has experienced as if talking of a tree; a branching experience still going on nowadays. Today we can speak from Kansei in theory; Kansei emotion measurement; Kansei engineering; Kansei information; Kansei education; Kansei design to Kansei in practice and many other disciplines.

Three years ago our team started the experience to introduce Kansei in the educational atmosphere; applying it to the finals degree projects. In the School of Building Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de València and inside its final degree project proposal; a workshop on Kansei Engineering was offered. During these years at the eighth semester of the building engineer degree; students have been working for almost 5 months under the supervision of a team of teachers on their final project till the final public oral defense was made infront of a committee.

During these years we have worked with an average of 10 students per year. Some have successfully completed their final projects; others have not achieved the minimum required. The article aims to explain the experience during the last 3 years the team has accumulated in Kansei Education; and can be of interest for every teacher.
