This study presents the impact of embedded system on the development of on-board diagnostics (OBD) implemented by engineering students. The engineering students need professional skills in engineering design for their future related works. We design a practice course to train students to integrate discipline-specific components into embedded systems and learn the subject-matter deeper through a vertical integration. Focusing on a specific and multi-disciplinary design project gives the students a helpful train to apply design principles, but they have difficulties in absorbing what they have learned and applying their learning to other projects. This course encourages students to integrate different and related knowledge into experiments, and it provides students training on the design details of OBD, electric circuit design, and embedded system. We designs a practical implementation course to teach multi-disciplinary skills of vehicle electronics in the OBD implementation based on embedded system. The study uses pre-test and post-test to examine the impact of the experiments. Most graduate students in vehicle engineering participated in the whole of this exercise. From the results of test, we can see that students have significant improvement on every concept category in this course, and students' responses are generally very positive.
