AR02: Microprocessor – Arduino Intermediate course

AR02: Microprocessor – Arduino Intermediate course

About the Course

This course continues from the AR01: Arduino Basic Starter course and explores further functions of the Arduino.

Robotix Lab educates by doing, thereby merging innovative thinking with technology, allowing for creative tinkering to produce projects that link to the Internet-of-Things.

Course presenter: Bernhard Heyer (MSc-BIS (Amsterdam); NHDip-ElecEng; Dip-Datametric; Cisco-CCAI(Birmingham)) has a passion for education and has many years of experience lecturing in electrical engineering and ICT courses and has worked in large automation industries. He also lectured in the Netherlands and Germany.

Who is the target audience?

This course is for anyone who is interested in learning about microprocessors using the Arduino. The course assumes prior basic knowledge of the Arduino and the IDE programming environment such as is covered in the AR01: Arduino Basic Starter course.

Basic computer skills are necessary with an interest in technology. High school, post school, hobbyists, career changing, home-executives, retirees, etc. are all welcome!
