The World Wide Web is ubiquitous, interesting, and is now a part of many electrical and computer engineering courses. A set of Web design modules for utilization in non-web programming electrical and computer engineering undergraduate classes is introduced in this paper. The modules began as an introductory exercise for a “Circuits for the non- major” class, and have been adapted for utilization for a number of different audiences. The introductory module for the Circuits class takes about 15 minutes on the first day of class, and proves to be a popular introduction for the non-major [mechanical engineering students and civil engineering students] to the topic of ‘electrical and computer engineering’. The students have laptops in class, and are instructed to develop a small webpage to describe themselves to the entire class. The WebPages are posted on the course Blackboard, which is course management software, during the first session and the instructor displays the pages as a different way for students to introduce themselves on the first day of class. This type of interactivity is utilized in engineering design in industry, and students find the environment stimulating.
