This paper describes some distinguishing features of a course on mechatronics, based on computer science. We propose a teaching approach called Controlled Problem-Based Learning (CPBL). We have applied this method on three generations (2003-2005) of mainly fourth-year undergraduate students at Lund University (LTH). Although students found the course difficult, there were no dropouts, and all students attended the examination 2005.
