This paper discusses the content of two basic courses in control engineering: Feedback Control Systems and Process Control with their associated Lab (laboratory) sessions. Such undergraduate level courses are lectured at the Electronic and Mechatronic Engineering Department (EMED) of UTEC (Universidad de Ingenieria y Tecnologia, Peru). The Lab sessions are performed in the Control Systems as well as in the Process Automation Labs. The structured experiments with their rubrics are carried out by the students after covering the corresponding theory classes. This methodology permits students to bridge the gap between theory and practice by means of hands-on and open (reconfigurable and reprogrammable) plants. An open plant allows the renewal of experiments. On the other hand, UTEC employs a methodology to engage undergraduate students to perform research. Several papers published in indexed international conferences ware based on various experiments performed by the students in the Lab sessions.
