Digital signal processing is a pivot course for electronic information engineering major. It involves mathematics theory and algorithm realization on an integrated circuit (termed Digital signal processor, DSP). The DSP course is based upon a wide range of knowledge, and is difficult to be mastered in a short term. The paper introduces DSP course reform under the frame of Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO) engineering education model. It proposes sixteen engineering projects for students. Five students grouped together to conduct a project. They divided each project into different tasks according to CDIO model. Each student conducted some of task and discussed in the team meeting. When the project was finished, they gave oral defense. Teacher gave comments on their work. The reform arouses students’ initiative and promotes teaching quality of DSP course.
