Course Description

This course will introduce and explore the programming language and operating systems facilities essential to the implementation of real-time, reactive, embedded, robotic, and/or networked systems. It will provide the knowledge of practical system issues raised from design and programming. Differentiated issues arising from design, concurrent, reactive, safety-critical and embedded systems will be explored in depth. Simple hands-on development is facilitated with an embedded system development kit.


It is recommended students take CSCI 130 and have C programming experience prior to taking this course.

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis. 
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
