Innovation in Engineering Education: Reshaping the Electrical Engineering Curriculum

2017 International Journal of Innovative Research in Electronics and Communications  
Research on engineering education curriculum and coming up with a structure that will allow electrical and computer engineering students to be introduced to the first circuit course and digital logic design at the freshman level is of great significance. Allowing students in these fields to be introduced to the electrical/computer engineering courses at the freshman level and with the just needed calculus and differential equation knowledge will allow those students to take more advance courses

Research will be conducted to show that there are many schools up to this date that are still introducing the circuit classes at the second and the third year level and these schools are offering the advance electrical/computer engineering courses mostly late in the senior year. The proposed change in the electrical/computer engineering curriculum will shift the offering of the circuit classes to the freshman level allowing a less tense electrical/computer engineering advance courses later at the junior/senior level. This shifting of the curriculum will demand a change in the curriculum structure of the circuit courses. By doing that, this change will allow the students to learn and get introduced to more courses in the ever developing field and yet give them an edge and make them better prepared to enter the practical field.
