The engineer's creativity is becoming more important as high value-added products are required. In this paper, a new curriculum model for creative engineering education has been developed. This study proposes the method of applying Chem-E-Car to the chemical engineering education for students to develop creativity. The Chem-E-Car is used as a given problem to students for developing safety study, teamwork, communication skill and creativity. The PBL(problem based Learning) is used in the class. The problem in this case is to make the Chem-E-Car, a shoebox sized car powered only by chemical reactions. Four types of Chem-E-Car such as turbine, rocket, voltaic cell and fuel cell are developed through out this program. The fuel cell powered Chem-E-Car is emphasized to students as new problems with constraints. This paper shows how the students solved the problems with creativity.
