Student Learning Outcomes

1. Students will have an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs through design of digital systems at the register transfer level.
2. Students will have an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs through design of state machines and a simple computer with simple peripherals using an FPGA.
3. Students will have an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice through the use of a hardware description language in the design process.
4. Students will have an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to analyze the size and performance of the designed digital system including functionality, time analysis, and throughput.
5. Students will have an ability to communicate professionally by producing professional lab reports.
