Abstract This paper focuses on accreditation inspired project oriented design based learning (PODBL) curriculum for engineering education. To be an accredited curriculum, education programs must incorporate graduate attributes mentioned by program accrediting professional bodies. This paper firstly looks at the program educational objectives, student outcomes, assessment methods and evaluation of different undergraduate engineering programs that shows how design is practiced and incorporated as an important element of the graduate attributes through project oriented design based learning curriculum inspired by professional accreditation requirements. It describes a detailed outcomes based category mapping of the Deakin University Engineering programs to the Engineers Australia, Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, and the European Accreditation of Engineering Programmes. The paper also describes a detailed outcomes based mapping matrix, which could be used to evidence the alignment of accreditation requirements with engineering learning outcomes.
