A project course in electronics is presented. It has been given successfully for almost ten years (more than 2000 students) within the engineering education at Linköping University. The cornerstones of the course consist of carefully designed learning outcomes based on the CDIO Syllabus; a well designed course organization; a structured project management model such that the project tasks are carried out according to professional and industry like routines; challenging project tasks; and well equipped laboratory workspaces.
