Abstract

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Arizona State University has deployed a novel infrastructure for a concentration track in embedded systems that combines important aspects of academic content with the latest in research and industrial practices. The concentration track emphasizes fundamental issues such as the balance between hardware and software and the respective trade-offs of building embedded systems. It is realized through the use of formal course work and hands-on experience that is channeled through a capstone project implemented as internships.

1 Introduction Rapid proliferation of embedded systems in a wide range of consumer and professional applications is expected to continue as is evident in the increased number of Internet applications with links to home appliances and industrial controllers. This trend is prompting a move from dedicated chip-set systems towards powerful processors that can be programmed to achieve a wide variety of functions. At Arizona State University, we are completing the implementation of a novel infrastructure for a concentration track in embedded systems that combines important aspects of academic content with the latest in research and industrial practices. The concentration track emphasizes fundamental issues such as the balance between hardware and software and the respective trade- offs of building embedded systems. Our curricular project spans the entire spectrum of activities related to the design and delivery of educational and research efforts and is characterized by three main innovative components namely, 1) a new industry-university collaborative model for integrating basic and applied research into a degree program, 2) creation and delivery of state-of-the-art course content and appropriate laboratories, and 3) creation of capstone projects that are implemented through internships. The curricular project involves the synthesis of the core of an embedded systems program based on the latest research and close cooperation with industry. The content of the program draws heavily upon advanced research and development in industry and academia and are reinforced by
