Abstract

This paper presents a project-based learning experience to teach mobile communications subjects, carried out at Universidad de Alcal´a, Madrid, Spain. The experience consists of a competition among teams formed by students, who act as consultant companies working for imaginary operators. The objective of the teams is to obtain the best network design and economical budget for the imaginary operator in the city of Alcal de Henares. The proposed learning scheme uses existing concepts of different fields, such as the project-based or the competitive games methodologies, and applies them in the teaching of telecommunications subjects. Details on the practical application of the methodology and the results obtained in Universidad de Alcalá are discussed in the paper.
