Modern electrical engineering students need to learn about any new emerging field that directly impacts and is important to the profession. The development of the low-loss fibers, the miniature laser/detector systems, the photonic switches, the nonlinear optical devices, the optical signal processing, etc., have created the need to incorporate this special new knowledge into electrical engineering curriculum. however, the curriculum is restricted to a specific number of credit hours and, in most cases, it is impossible to add new courses unless other courses, which may be important, are deleted. To alleviate this problem, some 15 years ago Professor Seely and the author proposed the embedded method as a solution to the problem. This method is flexible, can be adopted at any level of instruction, can be incorporated in any field within the electrical engineering discipline, is easily implemented, and can also be adopted by any other field outside engineering which needs such a modification.
