In our Computing and Networking Sciences (CNS) Department at Utah Valley State College (UVSC), there are four areas of specialization. The four areas of specializations are computer science, software engineering, networking, and computer engineering. In this curriculum, the students matriculate into the CNS department after successfully completing the requirements of 30 hours of core courses common to all computer science students. The students continue taking core courses until the first semester of their junior year, when they begin choosing their electives from different specialization areas.
Digital logic design courses are fundamental core requirements in both computer engineering as well as computer science departments, in which students get their first exposure to hardware design. It is important that the content of such courses reflect the current design styles used in industry.
This paper describes a three-course sequence in digital logic design that we have developed for our computer engineering area of specialization in computer science department at Utah Valley State College. In this paper, we elaborate the detail content of our three-course sequence and the teaching strategies, and analyze its outcome.
Utah Valley State College is located at Utah Valley, was founded in 1941. UVSC is a state college comprised of two interdependent divisions. The lower division embraces and preserves the philosophy and mission of a comprehensive community college, while the upper division consists of programs leading to baccalaureate degrees in areas of high community demand and interest1. Currently, UVSC offers 13 baccalaureate degrees. UVSC is the fastest growing college in the Utah System of Higher Education with over 23,000 students attending. The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science was one of the first Bachelor of Science programs which was approved in 1992 and implemented in 1993.1 Proceedings of the 2005 American Society for Engineering Education Annual Conference & Exposition Copyright © 2005, American Society for Engineering Education
