Executive Summary

Computer architecture is often taught by using software to design and simulate hardware modules and then using individual components to implement them. The authors' aim of this paper is to share their teaching experience of this subject in a way to enhance student learning outcome by developing projects for the computer architecture lab to help students better understand the theoretical concepts of the subject and to gain hands-on type of experience and apply that for more realistic projects. As a result, they have noticed that students show better interest in learning and understanding the subject materials over the last few semesters.
