The brief description of the Digital System Design course discusses the basic principles of digital system design, digital system design parameters, analysis and synthesis of combinational and sequential logic circuits, use of state diagrams in digital system design, modeling and simulating systems designs, formal verification methodologies for designs, fault models, design testing, design constraints, and design optimization techniques. The learning method applied in the previous year is the Teacher-Centered Learning (TCL) method. Based on the previous year’s assessment result, the level of difficulty in this subject is classified as high, so it is necessary to change the learning method so that students can learn more effectively and efficiently. This course’s learning method development is the student- centered learning (SCL) learning method, specifically Project Based Learning (PjBL). The implementation of the project-based learning model is proven to enhance the process and achievement of student learning outcomes in the Digital System Design course by providing projects according to the topics discussed. Assignments are given during in-class sessions every week and discussed in the subsequent lecture session based on students’ feedbacks. The final assessment results show an improvement in the distribution of grades.
