C Programming Workshop #1

If you missed our first C programming workshop, here it is! Check it out and come to the second workshop at 5:30pm tonight!

*Sorry about the fuzziness, I really need to learn how to focus better.



C Programming Workshops

We will be offering a series of three C programming workshops starting this Thursday.C is a very useful language to learn, especially for electrical engineering students as it has many uses in the industry. Hands-on technical experience is critical to success in modern careers.

These workshops will go over some basics of the programming language with examples. This is a great way to learn the basics of programming.

You will need to bring a laptop to these workshops.
Dates: Oct. 30th, Nov 6 & 13th
Time: 5:30-6:30pm
Place: EME 1153

Arduino Programming Class

I am very excited to announce that we will be providing a weekly Arduino/C++ class!
An Arduino is a microcontroller development board commonly used for many DIY electronic projects. The wonder of it is the relative simplicity of creating projects in real C++ code, providing a great entry point to those wishing to learn C++ while providing hands-on interaction that your computer screen simply cannot. Many students have even found use for them in spicing up their first and third year-end projects. Now you can do the same!

Come learn C++ programming and breadboarding skills and you will find yourself lighting up LEDs, pressing buttons, running motors, and reading information from all types of sensors. This is a great way for anyone to learn about basic electronics and will give you the tools to do all sorts of projects such as making line-following robots for competition, aquaponics monotoring for your home hobbies, or even making simple games.

We are offering a great deal to those who are taking the class: Pay $20 and you get an Arduino Nano, a breadboard, and some components that will be used in the class (LEDS, resistors, etc).

The Arduino/C++ class will be held every Tuesday this semester starting October 28th, 6-7pm in EME 2111.

More details will be discussed in the first class, so we encourage you to come even if you are not quite sure about attending.

MATLAB Workshop

Introduction to MATLAB Workshop held on Sept. 22nd, 2014.

MATLAB Workshops start tonight!

We have our first in a series of MATLAB and Simulink workshops tonight. Come learn the basics of MATLAB and Simulink! This is especially helpful for first and second year students as it will help with some class labs and assignments.

When: Sept 22 and 29th

Time: 7:30-8:30 pm

Where: EME 2205
