PBL is expected to be very useful in the engineering project course that leads students to active learning in problem solving process. But it is not actively utilized because of various problems. In this study, modified PBL lectures were laid out for a course that practice UX design process. Modified PBL lectures provide theoretical class and two PBL practices. The variant is that the problem design is made by the students themselves on a weekly basis, rather than by the instructor, and that the two PBL processes consist of one project. The results of this study are meaningful as a basic data in PBL-based engineering college project class. Additional discussion of how to evaluate grades needs to be specified.
