The continuous digitalization that our society has experienced over the last two decades and the explosion of software applications (culminating in AI) have negatively impacted Electronics engineering education, with hardware disciplines (including microwaves) being particularly affected. This global environment, which has changed significantly and is very different from the previous environment of the industrial age, has changed the mindset of the children of the newer generations, i.e., the Z and Alpha generations, and has shaped a mentality that makes the task of technical educators even more difficult. With this in mind, this article reports on the positive results obtained from a pedagogical point of view by applying a role-based enterprise scenario in the laboratory teaching, which, to the author's knowledge, is the first experiment of its kind in the literature. The experiment, which spanned three semesters, essentially consisted of implementing a teamwork environment in which each student is responsible for a single experimental task and a single student plays the role of team leader, responsible for collecting the experimental data provided by other colleagues, checking the accuracy and correctness of the data, performing calculations where necessary, and monitoring the experimental steps performed by the team. The experiment has shown that the practical experiments are performed faster, the learning process is improved, and the students take more responsibility for the tasks set. In addition, teamwork is encouraged thanks to intrinsic interactivity.
