Electronic engineers solve 21st century problems for industry and society. This course starts with you building and testing your own CityBytes microcomputer board. The board is integrated into the study of electronic circuits and you will also use it to learn how to program embedded devices using ‘C’ programming language. The board can be used as a Bluetooth device, a game controller, a logic designer and hybrid audio amplifier. It even comes with an Android, or Windows mobile app.The course reinforces theory with extensive practical work culminating in a substantial practical project. In previous years, projects have included a programmable drone, an ultra-sonic tape measure, a solar powered baby incubator for disaster areas, a keyboard, and a remote control mini search and rescue vehicle.
