A Student-Oriented Course in Digital VLSI Design
Paper i proceeding, 2007
As part of the European Community Bologna process the 4.5 year national engineering programs are replaced by a 3+2 year Bachelor and Master program. Coordinated with this reformation a shift from lecture-oriented to student-oriented education is carried through. In this paper some of these efforts are reported in the context of an introductory CMOS VLSI Design course. In times of vanishing student interest in engineering education university programs have become open for students with poor qualifications for university studies. Therefore, special emphasis must be paid to practising also very basic skills that we used to take for granted.
