ECE 2031, Digital Design Laboratory, is the first of several writing intensive courses within the curriculum. Through a semester-long series of lectures and hands-on laboratory exercises, students are called upon to understand the design and implementation of digital systems, CAD tools, project design methodologies, logic synthesis, and assembly language programming.

The class is co-taught by Dr. Tom Collins (technical component) and Instructor Kevin Johnson (writing component) who collaborate to create innovative, discipline-appropriate writing assignments. Lab summaries, formal lab reports, design proposals, team design reports, and industry-style email reports are among the types of writing assignments required in the course. Several out-of-class writing workshops are offered throughout the semester to students who are interested in small group instruction.
