This article is written to explain an innovative engineering pedagogy related with Project Based Learning (PjBL) concept via Compentency Based Assessment (CBA) in product development for subject J3102 . This concept aims to improve the self-regulation rules development of engineering students in Mechanical Department at Politeknik Kota Bharu , Kelantan. This study was includes both experimental instruments test and qualitative in nature. The data was analyzed using PjBL module and Competency Based Assessment (CBA). A total of four (4) groups among twelve (12) persons of SKM4A students from Mechanical Engineering Department were selected as respondents. This study finds that the students results of product development was increase, otherwise thier self-regulation become improve after using PjBL:CBA instruments. The result of an interview and observation on the usage of PjBL and CBA show’s the positive effect of self regulation among engineering students and produce high quality standard of the product one (1) and two (2) making parts. It is hoped that these PjBL:CBA concepts can be further developed and implemented among engineering lab and workshop at college community and polytechnics in Malaysia.
