Continuing Education Programs


Adventures in Information Technology

Dive into engineering and computing using the Arduino microcontroller. This STEM+C camp will feed your interest in learning to code and understand the basics of electrical engineering. Join the Information Technology Department in the College of Engineering and Computing who will help you design your own electrical circuits and sensors, and learn about programming them using the Arduino IDE, a simplified version of C++. You’ll learn how to control lights, motors and speakers and how to make your Arduino sense its environment. Applying everything you’ve learned, you’ll end your adventure by making your own project to solve an everyday problem.
