Embedded Systems Programming

Structure Type: Study unit
Code: TT00BI84
Curriculum: TT V2024
Level: Bachelor of Engineering
Year of Study: 4 (2027-2028)
Semester: Autumn
Credits: 5 cr
Responsible Teacher: Menani, Smail
Language of Instruction: English

Learning Outcomes

The student will familiarize themselves with advanced embedded systems programming such as the use of the stack, memory management, code optimization. The student will learn to how to use the C programming language to implement algorithms. Further, the student will learn to understand the choice of the programming language and the importance of real-time embedded systems.

Student's Workload

135 h, of which 50 hours of scheduled contact teaching.

Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses

Microcontroller Laboratory Exercises, Sensor and Control Technology, Design of Embedded Systems.


An overview of algorithms' implementation using laboratory exercises and different programming techniques. Learn the pros and cons of different implementation. Programming will focus on algorithmic-intensive applications, such as the use of the stack, timing and interrupt-driven systems management. Debugging and testing.

Recommended or Required Reading and Other Learning Resources/Tools

Material provided by the teacher.

Mode of Delivery / Planned Learning Activities and Teaching Methods

Programming exercises in laboratory. Short lectures during exercises.

Assessment Criteria
