The contribution of this paper is mainly two folded. An investigation on working processes of Software Engineering, and comparisons with the CDIO initiative will be provided. Interestingly enough those seem to be quite close. Moreover, a case study on a project based course will be presented. The project requires large number of participants to fulfil the task. This in turn put high demands on communication, coordination, etc. Challenges of that kind, and others, should be handled within the frames of the defined working process. Problems, outcome of the course, and possible improvements will be discussed.
