An Interdisciplinary Design Course for Pervasive Computing
January-March 2012 (vol. 11 no. 1)
pp. 80-83

Virginia Tech offers an interdisciplinary design course for pervasive computing products, with the goal of providing undergraduates with the interdisciplinary and technical skills required to design and develop pervasive computing devices. The course has been developed and taught by a team of faculty from three departments—Electrical and Computer Engineering, Industrial Design, and Marketing—and a faculty member from the Department of Engineering Education has helped develop the class's interdisciplinary teaming processes.
