The U.S. telecommunications industry is experiencing an unprecedented demand for trained electrical engineers with the expertise to design and deploy new wireless communications services, encompassing the high growth areas of cellular telephone, personal communications, paging services, and wireless local area networks. The project described in this paper teams electrical engineering faculty from Virginia Tech's Mobile and Portable Radio Research Group (MPRG) and from the University of Missouri-Rolla to develop an innovative communications curriculum which draws from current research on radio signal propagation modeling, computer-aided design and simulation of wireless communication systems, and digital signal processing techniques to improve the performance and spectral efficiency of wireless modems.
