What You Will Learn

This certificate comprises of three courses that provides participants to obtain basic knowledge and skills in computer programming using 'C' language and use it to illustrate the operation of the microcontroller.


 

Computer Programming

This practical-oriented module equips participants with the basic knowledge and skills in computer programming using 'C' language. The main topics include basic computing concepts, fundamentals of C, branching, loops, and C functions. On completion of the module, participants will be able to explain and write C programs for simple engineering applications.

Basic Microcontroller Programming

This module provides general microcontroller interfacing circuits, and example programs for most common input/output devices used within microcontroller circuits. The interfacing circuits range from standard interfacing to low current and low voltage input/output devices to using transistors, relays or opto-isolators for high current and high voltage input/output devices to some advanced component interfacing, such as stepper motor, serial port, I2C interface etc.

Mircocontroller Interfacing & Applications

The module aims to provide students with the knowledge on how to design, analyse and select mechanical systems components used in machine and system design. Topics include selection of motor, coupling, gears, bearing and chain drive. Concept on dimension tolerance is also covered. Through the combination of lectures, tutorials assessments and project work, the module aims to prepare students to a level where they can undertake an engineering design problem in a methodical and professional manner.
