In spring 2005, for the third time, the electrical and computer engineering faculty and computer science faculty at Virginia Tech are teaching the course Wireless Networks and Mobile Systems, ECE/CS 4570. This course has some particularly interesting features. It offers integrated coverage of a broad set of topics that we would normally find in separate courses, often in different departments. It gives undergraduate students access to cutting-edge topics usually reserved for graduate courses. It also departs from the traditional lecture format to combine lectures with moderated laboratory sessions and at-home exercises and design projects. In this paper, we describe an innovative, senior- and graduate-level course on wireless networks and mobile systems. We discuss the course's history and guiding principles, the laboratory exercises and design projects, and outcomes, including dissemination activities.
