This document reflects the results of the study at the end of the course, which justify how the application of problem-based learning and collaborative learning help the student to take on board in the most appropriate way the study material. An analysis of the results of the surveys carried out amongst those students learning Communication Systems in Industrial Technical Engineering was undertaken, in order to evaluate whether the application of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) methodology together with Collaborative Learning (CL) was likely to improve the rate of development of their ability indispensable in today's business world, and also to achieve those objectives set out in the course. By far the majority of students showed a very positive attitude towards this methodology, their objections being very limited. A comparison was carried out with the results of those courses of a similar nature at the University of Cordoba, as was the attitude of the students towards this new methodology, with very comparable results.
