Design curricula in departments of mechanical engineering should provide students with an exposure to systems which incorporate embedded processors, real-time software, sensors and actuators. A graduate-level, project-based design course taught at MIT is described as one model for such an experience. The challenges in developing such courses are to channel student energy into a successful learning experience and to manage the high costs of student and instructor time, equipment and supplies. Embedded processor courses need not be at the forefront of technology to be effective.
