This paper studies a structural acoustic model consisting of an interior acoustic wave equation with variable coefficients and a coupled Kirchhoff plate equation with a curved middle surface. By the Riemannian geometry approach and the multiplier technique, we establish exact controllability of the hybrid system under verifiable assumptions on the geometry of the interior domain and the interface boundary with two controls: One is a Neumann boundary control exerted on the wave equation, and the other acts on the interior of the plate equation. Furthermore, if the control for the plate equation is active alone, we prove that the hybrid system with partial Robin boundary condition of the wave equation is exactly controllable with the plate component and approximately controllable with the wave component.
