Foundations of Robotics & Embedded System Design with 8051
Total duration - 60 hours of lectures and practicals/hands-on. After this a mini-project will be undertaken by the trainee based on the learnings of this course. The trainee would be encouraged to design the project before implementing.

This training will prepare you for doing your own projects.
Course Instructor - Rupam Das. Total professional experience of over 18 years in Software Development and Training. For more details on trainer, visit http://www.rupamdas.com and http://www.linkedin.com/in/rupamdas

This training program has been designed to provide a thorough understanding of C programming & Embedded Systems basics and principles using 8051 based 8-bit microcontrollers. It teaches all the basic components of Embedded Systems and creates an understanding on how to integrate these components to design, program and develop a complete system. The knowledge imparted in this training will serve as a solid foundation for Embedded Systems design and development principles. This course also covers principles of Robotics and covers design of robots.

The level of C programming taught in this course is sufficient for campus placement for BE/BTech students.

All the modules have hands-on and lab sessions, with more tutorials provided for further study. Each topic in 8051 programming will be matched with real-time experiments on the hardware kits.
Target audience for the program

This program is targeted at undergraduate Engineering students. This program can also be attended by interested students of MCA and PG Engineering streams.
