A first course in Automatic control is presented. A main objective of the course is to put most of the emphasis on the Implement and Operate phases in the process of developing a control system for a process. The course is built around a large amount of student active learning based on three extensive laboratory exercises, where each laboratory exercise can have duration of up to two weeks. For each of the laboratory exercises there is a sequence of learning activities supporting the students’ learning: Introductory lecture, problem solving session, preparation work, help-desk session, independent work in the laboratory, and a final demonstration of the control system. In addition there is a small project where the task is to write a manual for a process operator. The laboratory tasks involve implementation of a control system in an industrial PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) and development of an operator interface.
