A sequence of professional courses of study in Computer Engineering at the authors’ university was initiated. These included Digital Fundamentals, Programmable Logic Design, Computer Hardware and Digital Systems Design. This paper presents a study on how the problem based learning has been used for these courses. It also describes how CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate) concepts have been applied with an overview of all the hardware resources necessary to support the degree.
