Abstract Increasingly, electrical and computer engineers are making their careers in designing wireless embedded systems. This paper presents a teaching methodology and the associated laboratory setup designed to meet the needs in teaching wireless embedded systems. The courses allow the students not only to apply their previous knowledge of digital system design, computer architecture, electronic circuits, wireless networking, and software engineering, but experience actual systems engineering by designing and implementing a large-scale team project within a semester. A flexible hardware platform was developed and was accompanied by teaching methodologies that allow quick completion of ambitious course projects in this area.
