EIT Digital has launched three new courses on the online education platform Coursera. The courses are: Embedded Hardware and Operating Systems, Automata and Behavioural Equivalences, and Architecting Smart Internet of Thing-Devices.
EIT Digital’s three new online courses are part of the Internet of Things through Embedded Systems program, explains Martijn Klabbers, Online Education Activity Lead at EIT Digital and Project Developer and Manager at Eindhoven University of Technology. “These courses provide students with the cutting edge knowledge on Internet of Things and Embedded Systems. If you can complete these courses you have the capacity to become a Master in Embedded Systems. Generally, such a Master degree gives you access to world-renowned companies like ASML, NXP, Philips, Siemens, Nokia, etc.”
Fundamentals of Embedded Systems
Automata and Behavioural Equivalences is, according to Klabbers, a more theoretical course on system behaviour with the aim to validate systems. Embedded Hardware and Operating Systems deals with the basic embedded systems on hardware and operating systems and the foundations of the embedded systems and Internet of Things in general.
Internet of Things
Architecting Smart IoT Devices is the last of three ‘introduction to Internet of Things’ courses which EIT Digital, developed in cooperation with iMinds. ‘Architecting Smart IoT Devices’ and ‘Software Architecture for the Internet of Things’ were launched earlier this summer. Together these courses provide the practical introduction of Internet of Things and can be used as a foundation for the other more technical and academic courses.
Interested people needed to register by today but enrolment will be repeated every six weeks. The courses are free but if you want a certificate the costs are €50 per course.
Klabbers says that EIT Digital’s online education portfolio can be used as part of blended education settings, in both Master and Doctorate programs, and for professionals it is also a way to update their knowledge.
EIT Digital expects to launch more courses on Coursera in the near future. Current EIT Digital offered courses on Coursera are:
- Development of Real Time Systems
- Quantitative Formal Modelling
- Worst Case Performance Analysis,
- Software Architecture for the Internet of Things
- Automata and behavioural equivalences
- Embedded Hardware and Operating Systems
- Architecting Smart Internet of Thing-Devices.
