Abstract
Smart devices are omnipresent today and the design of these embedded systems requires a multidisciplinary approach. It is important that students in electrical engineering and computer science learn these different aspects of embedded systems design. Our course on Complex Systems Design Methodology presents an overview of embedded systems design with a strong focus on the main concepts, preparing the students for more detailed follow-up courses on specific topics. Imparting the theoretical concepts to the students is not sufficient, however. Hands-on sessions are indispensable for the students to acquire the necessary skills. In this article we present our approach for these hands-on sessions, which is to pose relatively small problems in separate sessions, each focusing on a single design aspect. Five years after the introduction of this new course at Ghent University, we can conclude that students not only like this course, but that their design skills have also improved by our new, aspectfocused, approach.
