This paper focuses on the software-defined radio (SDR) educational aspects. We describe a few recent SDR projects and tools that were developed as part of a graduate electrical engineering course at the School on Telecommunication and Aerospace Engineering (EETAC) in Castelldefels, Barcelona. EETAC is part of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC). It applies the project based learning (PBL) concept and offers technical and scientific courses in Telecommunication and Aerospace Science and Technology (BSc, MSc, and PhD). The tools we describe here offer hands-on experience on several basic and advanced SDR principles. We describe our experience and the lessons learned.
