A robotics-based freshman immigration course into computer systems engineering (CSE) was created to introduce students to the main design issues in CSE: multi-controller programming, sensor interfacing, servo actuation and serial communications. Freshman students were found to be enthusiastic about the robotis bioloid system used and found it challenging but not overwhelming. The instructional materials were designed around 3 projects: car bot in maze, GERWALK bot penalty kick, and GERWALK bot negotiating stair steps. Mid-term course assessment results are presented in this article.
