Competency-based education (CBE) is related, in simple words, with the possibility to create curricula whose main objective is to train students for the work reality, trying to minimize the time of adaptation of them in their future professional life. Although the philosophy behind this teaching paradigm is attractive, in practice its implementation entails an important effort for the academic institutions and teaching staff involved. In this context, this work presents a novel methodological proposal for teaching engineering competency-based courses, in this case, specifically applied on an automatic control course, providing details of its assessment structure and tools, learning activities developed (which integrates the use of virtual laboratories for online experimentation), and the method designed for the assessment of competencies.
