Abstract: In this paper, we describe the design, implementation, and evaluation of the MPE (Micro Project with Eclipse) learning activity. The MPE learning activity is designed to enable students to apply software engineering principles within a limited timeframe of one academic semester. The MPE activity is based on the Eclipse platform. Students studying a Software Engineering course at the Information Technology Department at King Saud University completed the MPE activity. An evaluation was conducted to obtain students' perceptions on the MPE activity and how well it helped them understand software engineering concepts. Results of the evaluation indicate that the activity was generally effective in helping students learn about various software engineering principles. Students indicated that it allowed them to apply software development phases from requirements to testing.
