Embedded Computer Software Certificate

The expanding application of embedded computers has created a demand for the skill required to program these systems. Programming embedded systems requires skills that differ significantly from those required for writing applications for use in the desktop PC environment. Opportunities in embedded system programming will continue to expand rapidly, as processors are embedded in wide range of products. This certificate focuses on acquiring the skills necessary to develop embedded systems. Subjects include embedded controller software development and underlying hardware aspects of embedded computing systems. Course topics include programming embedded controllers, practical real-time programming practices, and embedded operating systems. These courses explore the basic principles of embedded processors, and introduce the techniques required to develop reliable, real-time, event driven programs that can run stand-alone or under a real-time operating system.
