    The present day society requires specialists with multidisciplinary knowledge and skills. We discuss the possibilities to educate professionals that design intelligent products and systems as a result of a competency based education. In particular this paper features a teaching method that makes the students use intelligent algorithms that control robot behavior in a way that the robot can solve design problems with practical relevance, and reach human to machine interaction that includes machine intelligence. The outcomes of 14 cases done over 4 years showed that most students were able to integrate the required competencies in a synergistic way. Within 80 hours they could master the technical complexity of controlling a robot through a neural learning algorithm in well-grounded design cases.
