Who is this class for: This course provides an overview of the basic aspects of embedded systems components. If you are a product manager, a technical manager or involved in developing products, this course will give you an overview of the different aspects of embedded systems. We'll focus on applying this knowledge in the area of IoT. Our blended learning approach offers you the best of both worlds: you can learn online whenever you want to, but can still get hands-on coaching from industry experts. Although useful for professionals, this course is aiming for first year Master students in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science. Note that as a consequence, quiz questions are more exam questions where you have to construct the answer based on the principles that are taught in the web lectures, rather than to recall the literal text of the teacher.

The course curriculum is good but the last two quizzes were not properly organized. The content of the final quizz refers a while bunch of diagrams with no indexing .

Very good content. Very good introduction to advanced topics in embedded systems. I believe this is the first session and the course definitely needs some work to make it more interactive and engaging. Much of it is simply links to articles and then a quiz on what you read. Anyways I recommend it to anyone interested in embedded systems.
