Meet Our Learners
This certificate has given me good insight into how software interacts with hardware; it has also enhanced the skills I already have, pushing them to new limits. Robotics is one of many new frontiers, so when potential employers ask me about my robotics experience during job interviews, I can share the knowledge I’ve acquired from the courses I’ve taken as part of The Chang School's Robotics and Embedded Systems certificate.
