ESE/IPD519: Introduction to Embedded Systems

An embedded system is the product of a marriage between hardware and software. Embedded systems have grown to be ubiquitous in the modern world – from simple temperature controlled kettles to intricate smart watches with a plethora of functions squeezed into one small package to complex rovers for space exploration. This course introduces the theory and practice of developing embedded systems through exploration of modern microcontroller architectures and culminates in a final project where students have the opportunity to synthesize and apply their knowledge in a project of their own design.
