    The data from 33 responses to the more than 100 survey forms that were sent out to north American universities are tabulated and analyzed. The following information was selected: program statistics, including number of faculty, faculty hiring, number of Ph.D and Masters students, Ph.D graduation statistics, and research funding levels and funding trends; instructional aids, i.e. software used for computer-aided instruction and DSP laboratory hardware information; and course information, including course title, undergraduate/graduate enrollment, and subject area coverage. Statistics and various graphs and charts on program information, CAI software adoption, DSP laboratory facilities, and course subject area coverage are presented. It is concluded that not enough is known about DSP education at this time to speculate on its future.<> View full abstract»

    The Commission of European Communities (CEC) has put in place an interlocking set of initiatives aimed at enhancing the skillsbase European industry will require in order to sustain a competitive posture. One of these programs, COMETT II, is aimed at continuing education for small and medium enterprises. Another program, TEMPUS, aims to increase links between western and eastern Europe, and strongly focuses on academic interchanges and updating undergraduates/postgraduate curricula. DSP-forum, a COMETT II partnership between several European industrial firms and educational establishments, which primarily concentrates on short industrial training courses at a multiplicity of sites is discussed. Eleven partners in seven countries are currently involved with DSP-forum. Four additional partners presently complete the network of cooperating groups under TEMPUS sponsorship (primarily for development and validation of courseware and labware suitable for supporting remote interactive learning of DSP topics).<> View full abstract»

    An approach developed at Northeastern University for undergraduate DSP education that bridges the gap between theory and practice is described. It combines a traditional lecture component of DSP theory with a hardware-based laboratory component containing experiments and projects. The course organization and the laboratory are examined, and an illustrative project, a single-sideband modulator, is described.<> View full abstract»

    Strategies and tactics for teaching DSP at CalTech are discussed, and the role of design-oriented courses in undergraduate engineering education is briefly considered. Courseware for an applications-oriented course and design laboratory for advanced undergraduate student is described. Several projects carried out by students and the products developed and created by them are presented to illustrate students' performance.<> View full abstract»

    A second generation of IEEE Individual Learning Packages (ILPs), available under the new name self study courses, is described. These are multimedia packages that exploit the technological and commercial opportunities that arose since the mid 80s, when the first ILPs were produced. The primary target audience is individual members, though institutional used by universities, colleges, and industry is also anticipated (distribution by the IEEE is subject to a technical review by the Educational Activities Department,). The course structure and delivery, multimedia environment, software interfacing, and curricula are described, and an example is given to illustrate the manner in which HyperCard and the server package, DSP Designer, interact.<> View full abstract»

    A description is given of the InvestiGATOR, an integrated computer based instructional (CBI) delivery system for the broadly defined baseline study of signal and systems, which includes systems, communications, circuits, controls, power, signal processing, and DSP. The goal of the InvestiGATOR is to be a unifying agent and, in particular, to provide hands-on educational experience, understanding of the theory of learning, robust educational technology, and teacher and institutional acceptance. The rationale for and benefits of the InvestiGATOR are discussed, and its development is described.<> View full abstract»
