Abstract

This communication presents a collaborative experience between four Spanish centers: the School of Engineering (ETSE) and the Sports Services Area (SAF) both from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) jointly with two centers of the Technical University of Catalonia, the Technical school from Vilanova i la Geltru (EPSEVG) and the Technical school in Terrassa (ETSEIAT). The idea behind this collaboration is to explore the possibility of role playing in engineering education and project development for engineering students. The basic principle of such projects is the identification of the corresponding roles associated with the different parts that can be found on current social/industrial activity. In this paper the role playing model is presented: the first part, the role of the partners, and the second part the students' role developing applied projects in human-automation systems. © 2011 TEMPUS Publications.
