Teaching & PhD


Electrical and Electronics Engineering


Microprogrammed Embedded Systems

The student will get to know the architecture of microprogrammed embedded systems, including the microprocessor architecture, memory hierarchy and different input/output peripherals, using as case study the Nintendo DS portable platform.

Lab on hardware-software digital systems codesign

During the course, we cover the design of multi-core embedded systems running Linux on an FPGA. Students learn how to develop hardware-software co-design solutions for complex tasks using high-level synthesis languages. We cover debugging co-designed embedded systems with integrated logic analyzers.

Lab on app development for tablets and smartphones

This course focuses on mobile application programming for the Android ecosystem. Students learn to develop distributed Apps on mobile platforms, interfacing with multiple heterogeneous devices and the cloud. Students receive tablets and smartwatches, and can use their own Android devices if desired.

Design and Optimization of Internet-of-Things Systems

This course provides an overview of the relevant technologies and approaches for the design and optimization of Internet-of-Things (IoT) systems. It covers architectures of edge computing platforms, wireless communication options, cloud computing backend and different machine learning applications.
