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 Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB) jointly with two centers of the Technical University ofCatalonia, the Technical school from ViJanova i la GeJtru (EPSEVG) and the Technical school in Terrassa (ETSEIAT). The idea behind this colaboration is to explore the possibility of role playing in engineering ed ucation and project development for engineering students. The basic principie of such projects is the identification ofthe corresponding roles associated wi th the differen t parts that can be found OD current social/industrial activity. In this paper the role playing model is presented: the first part, the role ofthe partners, and the second part the students' role developing applied projects in human-automation systems.
