Design Thinking and Engineering Thinking are complimentary yet distinct aspects of mechanical engineering design activities. This paper examines these distinctions in the context of mechanical engineering students designing in a project-based learning course at Stanford University. By qualitatively analyzing and plotting student teams' prototyping activities, the students' work patterns can generally be assessed along a framework of Ambidextrous Ways of Thinking.
