The ICT degrees at Telecom-BCN, the Electrical and Telecom Engineering School of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), in Barcelona, were redesigned four years ago according to the CDIO Initiative Standards. This framework defines a set of tools to design and implement engineering programs that promote the learning of personal, interpersonal, and engineering-specific skills while ensuring a deep knowledge of basic and disciplinary knowledge. One of the more relevant tools is the inclusion of several design-build project subjects in the curricula. In our ICT engineering programs, four specific project-centered courses were scattered along the curricula, in the second semester of each academic year. MATLAB is pervasively used in these courses, with gradually increasing complexity. This session discusses the implementation of these projects into the curriculum using MATLAB.
