Two Days Workshop cum Hands on Practice on Embedded System

A two days workshop cum Hands on Practice on “Embedded System” was held on 28th February and 1st March, 2019 at the university campus organised by the Department of Electrical Engineering under TEQIP-III.

The workshop mainly focuses to give participants a chance to get hands-on experience on the latest trending embedded system hardware and different types of sensors. Emphasis is given to make the participants learn how to program the control boards for different types of sensors and different applications. About 81 participants attended the programme including both days.

  • To be able to define hardware and software communication and control requirements.
  • To acquire knowledge of and be able to use tools for the development and debugging of programs implemented on microcontrollers
  • To acquire knowledge of sensor properties and apply these in the design of Electronic systems which integrate measurement
  • To make the students skill full and efficient for all the hardware
  • To be able to work as part of a team, developing skills in interpersonal relations
  • Ability to lead and coordinate teams working on the design, development and implementation of embedded systems and proposing standard working methods and the tools to use.
