A laboratory component is being added to a four-course sequence in the undergraduate electrical engineering curriculum at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, in an effort to increase student learning and improve retention of prerequisite concepts. The lab and the study of its effects on achieving the course objectives in an undergraduate level course, ELEC 304 Signals and Systems, and a senior/graduate level course, ELEC 464/864 Digital Communications are discussed. The study uses a mixed method protocol in which the impact of the laboratory experience is measured through quantitative and qualitative techniques. This paper discusses the design of the study and results gathered to date.
