In the present paper, the authors propose to present the advantages and the characteristics of education through projects as well as components of experentive education at all educational levels and all specialties.

Nowadays, the education system has to adapt to the same learning environment specific to work-based and team responsibility. Direct instruction based on manual, traditional exposures and assessments does not work well in an open, interdisciplinary and learning-based learning process.

Nowadays, projects have become a necessary tool for the development of human activities in all socio-economic areas. Consequently, project teaching can generate an educational environment that develops the skills needed by new generations of specialists: responsibility, adaptability, creativity, critical and systemic thinking, processual approach, communication and collaboration skills. This type of learning develops knowledge, skills and attitudes, through extensive workloads that promote the investigation, demonstration, through various instructional strategies, thus improving the performance of trainees. Flexible application of the curriculum in a formalized educational act allows the establishment of learning tasks adapted to their level while being attractive, motivating and accessible.

In order to develop interdisciplinary projects at university level, the authors conducted an analysis of the training methods of all the specializations from the 9 faculties within the "Lucian Blaga" University of Sibiu. Centralized disciplines at the level of specializations and faculties where project-based training is used and those who do not use or declare that this training path cannot be used.

As a first experiment, the authors selected a group of 90 students, 10 from each faculty, with whom they worked on multidisciplinary projects for one semester. Given the diversity of their specializations, trainees have had the opportunity to identify projects that are consistent with their native talents and abilities. Everyone wants to learn, be creative and productive, but they need to create opportunities for that.

This paper presents the final results and proposals for improvement. In order to identify the differences between the current situation and the desired future state, as well as to determine the actions needed to cover this gap, a gap analysis was made
