Digital Logic Design: Meeting Industry’s Needs
Through University & Community College Collaboration
This project will reshape the way digital logic design is taught in the electrical engineering technology programs at Michigan Technological University and the College of Lake County. Instead of teaching topics and skills that are quickly becoming out-of-date and less important to employers, curriculum revisions will match current industry needs for skills in hardware description language and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) design. The new curriculum will provide students with a hands-on educational experience that is well-respected and desired by industry. Results from this project will provide a replicable model for electrical engineering technology programs at both two-year (community college) and four-year institutions. Resources will be disseminated through a variety of means including workshops, conferences, and publications.
