UW ECE assistant teaching professor Rania Hussein collaborated with educators at four universities — the University of Michigan, Monash University in Malaysia, The Public University of Navarre UPNA in Spain and the Federal University of Sao Paulo in Brazil — to create a distributed remote FPGA lab. Students can remotely access real hardware located at any of the participating universities. Professor Hussein piloted this project in her EE/CSE 371 “Design of Digital Circuits & Systems” course last fall. Instead of shipping lab kits to the 60 students enrolled in her course, she had students use the remote lab to access hardware on campus as well as at the other universities.
