Real Time Systems


Course code ELE3307

  Course is not currently open for enrolment

Many engineering systems today involve the integration of computer hardware and software in the form of embedded algorithms and device controllers, particularly those operating in real time.  This course aims to give you exposure to concepts related to real time systems and event driven programming, together with practical experience in the design of advanced engineering computer applications using low-level operating system functions and hardware devices.

How to enrol

Before enrolling in this course you need to:
