About this course

This course is designed to teach you how systems are developed using IoT technology.

Many engineers and developers tend to focus on a single discipline - either software or hardware. However, in today’s connected age it's critical to have a comprehensive understanding of both disciplines and how they are intertwined.

In this practical course, you'll gain a holistic understanding of system development from both software and hardware perspectives. A truly hands-on experience, you will develop your own embedded system. In doing so, you'll learn as much from your failures as your successes as you go along.

Note: In this course, we will use DE10-Nano Development Kit by Terasic Inc.

What you'll learn

  • How to design a basic system
  • Low-level programming
  • Hardware control
  • The interaction of software and hardware

Who can take this course?

Unfortunately, learners from one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. EdX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
