This paper reports two senior-level design projects in electronic and computer engineering study programs. The projects involve the design, development and construction of model robots using embedded controllers and microprocessors. The teaching technique not only motivates the students to develop a thorough understanding of the embedded controllers and microprocessors, but also helps them in the development cycle and to understand useful and innovative engineering applications. Details of the model robots and learning outcomes of the methodology used are presented.
