Digital Systems Laboratory Courses and Laboratory Developments. Interim Report of the COSINE Committee.
National Academy of Engineering, Washington, DC. Commission on Education.
A comprehensive undergraduate engineering program must provide opportunities for the application of theoretical concepts to the solution of realistic engineering problems. As digital systems and computer engineering concepts are integrated into the undergraduate electrical engineering curriculum, many departments are revising their laboratory programs to include more work with digital networks and mini-computers. In the study of the problem of developing undergraduate digital laboratory programs, the two major areas reviewed in this report are: (1) What digital concepts should be included in the laboratory program and how should they be presented? and (2) What type of laboratory facilities and Equipment are needed to carry out the recommended program?
