This paper reports the results of teaching an introductory course designed for both computer science and computer engineering majors. Both hardware and software development topics were integrated into a single course. Programming assignments involved the simulation of various hardware devices in software; these assignments were used both to teach programming concepts and to provide a means to reinforce the discussion of hardware concepts. The course also made extensive use of learning and active learning.
