Embedded Systems

College of Engineering & Applied Science - Boulder



An online class is delivered 100% electronically using the internet or other computer-based methods. The teaching is conducted from a remote location through an online course learning management system or other online or electronic tools. Students have access to the teacher and classmates synchronously, asynchronously, or both. Online classes typically are term-based, but some may be offered in a self-paced format.

Tremendous growth in embedded computing has given rise to demand for engineers with experience in designing and implementing embedded systems. The certificate program in embedded systems is designed to enhance your professional knowledge and develop skills in the design and use of embedded systems technology through hands on experience.
