Recently, the importance of creativity and problem-solving skills are being emphasized in engineering education. In particular, research is actively being conducted on learning models considering practicality or applicability in practice and education among many creative problem-solving methods. The objective of the present study is to develop a teaching and learning model and verify its effects in order to promote creative thinking and problem-solving skills using the TRIZ Contradiction Analysis. This study led the participants to obtain basic knowledge of creative engineering design through the creative engineering design course for freshmen at an engineering college, and come up with ideas and solutions using the TRIZ Contradiction Analysis. A survey was conducted and analyzed to verify the effectiveness of education using the proposed teaching and learning model, and as a result, the effectiveness of education has been proven by an average of 89 positive responses. Follow-up research is needed on improved application models so that the proposed learning model can be applied to various subjects.
