Project-Oriented and Problem-Based Learning (POPBL) is a new educational approach to improve the quality of teaching and learning. Shifting from the conventional teaching and learning to POPBL requires a change in paradigm as well as system set up. This paper reports the experience of implementing POPBL at UTHM, particularly with regard to the participation in a national motorcycle race competition, the Petronas Sprinta AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championship. One of the important elements is complementing experience-basedmechanic solutions with a more holistic solution using systematic engineering approach. Another important element includes augmentation of soft skills such as communication skills, managerial abilities, leadership, and teamwork. In general, the students, UTHM staff and the experience-based-mechanic have developed good relationship among each other which leads to the capability in solving real engineering problems.
