The student learning outcomes for the certificate are as follows:
Students earning the certificate will have
- The fundamental knowledge, skills, and techniques necessary to program and interface microcontrollers and microprocessors.
- The knowledge and ability to learn and interface other languages or microprocessor-based devices.
The certificate program in advanced microprocessors provides the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to enable you to use microprocessors in industrial applications. Some highlights of the course sequence include electronic simulations and calculations; theoretical and laboratory applications of digital logic circuits, operational amplifiers, D/A and A/D converters, computer memory circuits; microprocessor assembly language, Visual Basic, and “C” programming; EEPROM and EPROM programming; microprocessors and microcontrollers; experimental applications; and applied, practical projects. Special emphasis is placed on embedded systems using microcontrollers.
The CEIT department also offers the Bachelor and Associate of Science with a major in electrical engineering technology, a Bachelor of Science with a major in computer engineering technology (CPET) and a Bachelor of Science with a major in information technology. In addition to the degrees, the department offers a minor in electronics and certificate programs in computer-controlled systems, electronic communications, and computer networking.
To earn the certificate in advanced microprocessors, you must satisfy the requirements of Purdue University Fort Wayne (Regulations ), fulfill all course prerequisites, and satisfactorily complete the following courses. This certificate is not available to any student with a major in EET (A.S. and/or B.S.) or CPET (B.S.).
