The Foundation Coalition at Arizona State University offered for the first time a novel upper division integrated course in Electrical Engineering in the Fall '97 semester. This first offering combined two upper division courses into an integrated class that sought to reduce the compartmentalization and emphasize the substantial overlap of the separate courses. The courses involved were: (1) an introduction to the properties of electronic materials: and (2) the first course for EE majors in electromagnetic engineering. The main thread that integrated the two courses was "wave phenomena". This paper discusses the organization of the course, the nature of the course integration, details about the technology infusion, and a brief description of the tool used to carry out assessment of the course and the students' performance.
