Generally traditional teaching approach in engineering and science courses are deductive. This means that teaching begins with a general theory or idea and finally finishes with its implementation in industry, life, work and the likes. In inductive approach, subject matter begins by a simple problem, a case or a special observation and ultimately ends to a theory. In this paper we introduce inductive approach teaching features and consider more usual methods of this approach in engineering education i.e. problem-based learning, project-based learning, and case-based teaching.
