Fostering Students' Interest in Embedded Systems

In the second semester of the 2013-2014 academic year, the chapter, together with the Centre for Technological Electronics and Interconnection Techniques, University of Bucharest (UPB-CETTI) organized in partnership with Microchip Technology extracurricular activities for freshmen from the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology. The objectives were to familiarize students with microcontroller architecture and the programming of microcontrollers, and to provide an introduction in microcontroller-based electronic modules. During the previous semester the students had participated in an extracurricular laboratory that represented a short introduction in electronic technology. The collaboration with Microchip was the next step to better understand embedded systems. The activity proved to be a success with plans to implement it again next year. As thanks for the solid and constant support given to the chapter in training students in the field of microcontroller based intelligent electronic modules and systems, in July the chapter awarded the Excellence Award to Delia Chiricescu, Ph.D., managing director and Horia Boicu, CAE leader, Microchip Technology Romania. The diplomas were awarded by Dr.h.c. Paul Svasta, Ph.D., professor and adviser for the chapter, and Cristina Marghescu, first vice president of the chapter.
