Teaching Embedded System Concepts for Technological Literacy

  • A basic understanding of technology is recognized as important knowledge even for students not connected with engineering and computer science. This paper shows that embedded system concepts can be taught in a technological literacy course. An embedded system teaching block that has been used in an electronics module for non-engineers is presented. It comprises 1 h of lecturing and 3 h of hands-on lab work. Feedback and evaluation show that students are able to gain a basic understanding of the topic even in such a limited time.
