Workshop on Embedded System

We Sharadchandra Pawar College of Engineering conducted a Two days’ Workshop on “Embedded System (ARM Processor)” during 20th & 21st March 2017 sponsored by Board of Student’s Welfare, SPPU, Pune.

The objective of this workshop was to acquaint the participants with to understand the state of art in ARM Processor based Embedded System design. The student will be able to do programming in embedded programming in C, C++. The student will understand Linux operating system and device driver. The participants will demonstrate the knowledge of Raspberry Pi.

42 participants have actively participated with lots of zeal and enthusiasm. The entire workshop was conducted in a systematic manner.

All the faculty and staff members actively participated in the event to make it a grand success.
