Theme-based redesign of the duke university ECE curriculum: The first steps

Conference Paper

Undergraduates in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Duke University have benefited from the combination of curricular flexibility and rigorous coursework. The current curriculum is further limited in that the core courses do not offer a vertically integrated thematic introduction to ECE as a discipline nor are they reflective of the broader scope of ECE field of study. The course has streamlined structure, which is consistent with an educational theme. Results from Educational BEnchmark Inc. (EBI) survey of students confirmed that they too perceive the oppurtinities for improvement in curriculum.
