Learning the ‘C’ Programming language is one thing, but learning to use it effectively and appropriately in a real-time embedded environment is another. For many programmers, these skills are learnt the hard way, through trial and error and the job. This course addresses this issue by not only teaching the ‘C’ programming language, but through emphasizing the pragmatic use of C in a real-time environment. This is achieved through both lecture and direct hands-on-experience

Course Objectives:

  • Understanding of the core essentials of the ‘C’ programming language
  • Gain practical experience of writing C for real-time & embedded systems
  • Insights on standards for compliance like ANSI, C99, MISRA
  • To demonstrate the traps and pitfalls of the language when used in a real-time system
  • Able to write portable code across various architecture
  • Insights on writing secure code that cannot be easily exploited

Target Audience:

  • The course is designed for engineers who are embarking on a project using C for Embedded Environment.
  • Engineers / graduates in E&C, E&E and CE or equivalent.


  • Desired to have Computer Architecture
  • Operating Systems Concepts
  • Any one Micro Processor/Controller architecture
